Christopher Boffoli: Food Whimsy

Christopher Boffoli’s whimsical photo art, from an exhibition at Marcia Rafelman Fine Arts gallery in Toronto.

Boffoli uses meticulously hand painted railway model figures glued into place onto real food.

“I chose food as a backdrop because it is a constant,”  he says.  “People see a striking image of food and are immediately drawn in because it is something familiar.

He creates the engaging, humorous scenes as commentary on America’s dysfunctional relationship with food.

Boffoli is a Seattle-based photographer, artist and filmmaker with a background in literature and writing.
