World famous Danish photographer Per Johansen is known for snapping creative and unique photos of food. On this ocassion, he is pushing the envelope by photographing meat, pasta, and vegetables that have been crammed inside plastic bottles.
The provocative photos are part of a new series called Full. The series includes pictures of whole chickens, fish, snails and even sausages stuffed inside plastic bottles, which prove a bit unsettling. The images are beautifully shot in a background of pastel colors, which ironically add a touch of cheerfulness.
On his website, Per explains that Full offers a criticial view of overconsumption in today's society: ''At first glance, the viewer is drawn by something seemingly aesthetic in perfect harmony...but if you take a closer look, the motifs are marked by something decadent, disgusting and incarcerated. Something is in decay, and it disturbs the harmonious balance.''
