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.

I would love to buy a book with all these food and art photos in it, does anyone know if it is in the works?
Hi John – I just had a quick look at his website, which only lists prints. But if you go there, you’ll see a list of galleries where he’s exhibited. I’d email one of the galleries and ask about catalogs, which might substitute for a book? http://bigappetites.net/purchase/
Great idea, thanks!
I saw his photos in a booth at the Armadillo Christmas Bazaar in Austin, TX this past year. Love it.
I’m told he is energetically everywhere he can possibly be. Great strategy for such interesting work.
WOw I’m very fond of your art! ~love
I’m glad you’re finding inspiration here. Thank you.
