Sugary breakfast cereals, soda and french fries aren't the cornerstones of a healthy diet but these tasty processed treats sure make for some fine food art. Just ask photography duo Barbara Ciurej and Lindsay Lochman.
Together they've created Processed View, a series of surreal landscapes made with junk food like potato chips, processed meats and candy. The project is meant as a social commentary on nutrition, culture and capital aspirations.
"Processed Views interprets the frontier of industrial food production: the seductive and alarming intersection of nature and technology. As we move further away from the sources of our food, we head into uncharted territory replete with unintended consequences for the environment and for our health," the photographers write on their blog.
Processed Views references the work of photographer Carleton Watkins (1829-1916) who is known for his iconic images of the American West. Take a look at the creative landscapes below and swing by Ciurej and Lochman's website to see more of their amazing work.
