Hargreaves and Levin Maps Out the World with Food

Henry Hargreaves has served us rainbow food art and toasted bread portraits but this time, he’s tackling the world. Together with New York-based food stylist Caitlin Levin, Hargreaves created the geographical series ‘Food Maps.’ As the name suggests, each topographical silhouette is made up of each culture’s tasty edibles and took the couple a day to build each one. Inspired by how specific ingredients come to be associated with specific countries, one is bound to agree that the food-infused cartography of each locale is spot-on. According to the pair, “these maps show how food has traveled the globe. while we know that tomatoes originally came form the Andes in South America, Italy has become the tomato king. who doesn’t know the saying ‘throwing some shrimp on the barbie’ and not think of Australia? who goes to France without eating bread and cheese? and who makes a Brazilian caipirinha without using fistful of limes‘?”
