Many will recognize Christopher Boffoli as the mastermind behind Lucky Peach‘s distinctive Travel Issue cover, but the photographer has been in the game for quite some time. Boffoli has spent over a decade designing images that combine miniature humans with ordinary food items. Boffoli has had several solo shows in New York, published a book, and accumulated a collection of thousands of 20-millimeter figurines.

Here, we feature a collection of Boffoli’s Halloween candy-centric images found in his book Big Appetites. The collection includes candy corn expeditions, a gumdrop hot-air balloon, the perils of caramel apple-making, and more.
