In a few weeks, most Americans will sit down for a Thanksgiving Day dinner. And, segmenting the standard turkey, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce and green beans — not just throwing it all in one big pile — will be as creative as we get with our plating.

Luckily, artist Hannah Rothstein has taken the creativity a bit further, by imagining what a Thanksgiving meal might look like if it were plated by a famous artist. The standard fare is arranged as if Vincent van Gogh himself was your host — as well as entries from Rothko, Pollock, Mondrian and others.

Skitchen, Fruits and Vegetables Skateboard and Kickflip Through The Kitchen

SKITCHEN-1

Skitchen, a food photography series by Paris-based artist and photographer Benoit Jammes, brings us into the secret sporting life of fruits and vegetables.

When no one is around to see it, various forms of produce nosegrind and kickflip through the kitchen. Whether it’s a banana grinding down a rolling pin, or a potato ollie — the produce appears to be having a good time, before they’re literally shredded and consumed.

Models Covered in Sweets Test The Boundaries of What’s Sexy and Hunger-Inducing

Attractive and well-lit models always make for a successful photo shoot. As does some yummy food, styled to perfection. But when combining the two… how far can this be taken before your photos are void of sexuality and no longer make the viewer hungry?

Photographer Keith Allen Phillips recently tested these boundaries, with Messy — a photo series that merges the inherent sexuality of an attractive model with some well-placed junk foods.

By combining the two — in some cases making the models unrecognizable — we’re left to wonder if this series is still sexy, hunger-inducing, or just plain gratuitous. Thoughts?
