You leave the house and your potatoes immediately start practicing their kickflips.

3. Ceramics by Anna Barlow
These sculptures may look deliciously oozy and gooey, but you’d break a tooth if you attempted to eat one.
A series depicting meals that came to a close rather abruptly: “each shot vividly captures the disappointment and sense of abandonment that evidently accompanies a gathering that is suddenly and unexpectedly ended.”
The meals you see above = “Al Dente” (“an Italian lunch ruined by a calculated mob hit”) and “Honeyed” (“picnic ravaged by a swarm of bees”).

13. “Recipes” by Nora Luther and Pavel Becker
Preparing dinner would be exceedingly difficult if the ingredients suddenly became weightless.
14. “Foodie Alphabet” by Vidhya Nagarajan

17. “Band Riders” by Hargreaves and Levin
If you’re a famous performer you get to make requests before you arrive at a venue for a concert – you put together a “rider” filled with the different things you want to munch on and drink backstage. You could simply ask for bottled water… or get much, much more elaborate. In this series, Henry Hargreaves and Caitlin Levin depict the riders of famous musicians like Beyoncé (“juicy baked chicken, garlic, sea salt, black pepper”) and Marilyn Manson (“gummi bears”).
Dinah Fried photographs different meals as they are described in works of literature (like The Bell Jar and The Catcher in the Rye). Intrigued? Her series was made into a book – buy it here.
