Fictitious Dishes for Book Lovers and Foodies Alike

Photographs of Meals from Books

“The kettle soon began to boil, and meanwhile the old man held a large piece of cheese on a long iron fork over the fire, turning it round and round till it was toasted a nice golden color on each side.” Heidi. Source: NPR

Dinah Fried still remembers reading about the gooey cheese-covered toast in Heidi as a young kid. In fact, she feels most proud of the photographs that capture and recreate meals from her favorite childhood literature. The Fictitious Dishes project is a spectacular, heartwarming nod to over two centuries of food and literature. Fit for both bibliophiles and foodies alike, the photo book renders into reality meals from our favorite stories.

Anyone who has ever traversed the busy streets of a crowded city will immediately relate to the overwhelming chaos that defines Hubert Blanz’s photography. His artwork is devoid of people, but full of complex architecture. By stacking and manipulating images of roads, homes and cars atop one another, Blanz creates an urban nightmare in which concrete pandemonium reigns. The series, Roadshow, builds upon images of pre-existing roads, intersections, freeways and bridges to create a masterpiece that’s equal parts overwhelming and intriguing.
