These Hypnotizing Food Cinemagraphs Will Make You Hungry Over and Over Again

Kitchen Ghosts recently made a series of mesmerizing cinemagraphs, that take us through a few meal preparations.

Although the animated photographs are beautiful and could be hunger-inducing, cinemagraphs can often be a wee bit creepy. Judge for yourself while watching a semi-lifeless body endlessly pounding a chicken cutlet.

Check out more over at Kitchen Ghosts, and get hungry and/or creeped out… over and over again.

Melting Ice Cream Has Never Been More Beautiful Than In This Photo Series

There are few things that are more disappointing than melted ice cream. That is unless the process is captured over time by photographer Michael Massaia.

Transmogrify is a brilliant series of long exposure photography by the artist from New Jersey [holla!]. Various ice cream treats are placed on a stark black background and, using little more than available light, Massaia documents the treats coming apart.

The result is a beautiful display of colors, ephemera, and virtual motion — at times resembling deep-space photography or a full-color Rorschach test. Finally, melted ice cream that doesn’t disappoint.

Transmogrify is currently on display at Gallery 270 in New Jersey.

Sandwiches Deconstructed and Organized Neatly On Vintage Lunch Trays by David Schwen

dschwen-organized

Artist David Schwen has a way of using minimalism, incorporating everyday objects, and making the end result so awesome that it hurts.

Schwen’s recent “How To” series is a perfect example of this. Created for The Daily Share, the series takes a few well-known sandwiches and lunch items, breaks them down into parts, and presents them segmented on a vintage lunch tray.

The images that Schwen creates become a thorough exercise in minimalism, deconstruction, ephemera and food styling. And, if you didn’t already know what makes up a cheeseburger or Reuben, the photos can be a handy tutorial in sandwich-making.

Junk Food Plated To Look Like Gourmet Meals

Although most junk food doesn’t need anything more than garish packaging and a shiny sugar-coating to appeal to our eyes — there are ways to make it seem more sophisticated.

Chef Jacques Lamerde, using master plating skills, takes some of our favorite sugary and salty items, and makes them appear gourmet.

He even applies fancy menu-naming techniques to the plates of Hot Pockets, Pop-Tarts and Munchkins, to help complete the culinary ruse. See more below and over at his Instagram.

Hot Girls Eating Pizza Is How You Make a Successful Instagram Account

You use the appropriate filter. You only take pictures of your finest meals and sunsets. Still, your Instagram account is not getting the attention that it deserves.

Hot Girls Eating Pizza could teach us a few things. For one, Instagram users love pizza. Secondly, pictures of aesthetically-pleasing girls get “Likes.” Combine the two, and @H0tGirlsEatingPizza is a bona fide hit on the photo app… no matter what filter they use.

See more “cool girls & hot pizza” here.
