Ice cream is used as a metaphor for life in this collection of images that feature ice cream in all aspects.
Factory gathered a collection of images that explore the dessert in great detail. "Fragile and temporal, yet pleasurable"; was the theme that the collective highlighted.
Takeshi Suga (featured above) told it's nice that : “I use ice cream as a sweet and sentimental vehicle for stirring up nostalgia and our longing for childhood, and what makes my images unique is that there’s a strong Japanese aesthetic to them, both visually and narratively.”
Other artists include: Jon Riche, John Gibben, Alexandra Plesner, Lena Vazhenina and more.
Here is a just a taster of some of their work below. Head over to i Scream Factory for the diverse collection of art and artists.
