The creative duo Terrence Caviar was created by the San Francisco based photographer Kelsey McClellan together with the stylist and art director Michelle Maguire. Inspired by diners lacking a seat at the table, they created the Wardrobe Snacks series, a photographic project that focuses on close-ups of hands holding various types of snacks: from more usual ones, like an ice cream cone or a wafer, to more original snacks like an oyster.
The snacks are the protagonists of these monochromatic pictures, as each image is built starting from them: the choice of the dress, the light, and the position of the hands holding them.
No need to sit at a table
We can have a snack no matter where we are. "They’re informal — perhaps even a bit awkward — spaces as far as eating is concerned, yet the diner always appears to be comfortable and perfectly satisfied with his chosen snack, almost zen-like," McClellan explains. The most important thing is that the clothing perfectly matches with foods' colours and textures, giving a chic finishing touch to the act of eating.
