Taking your mum’s favourite expression “The dinner is not going to cook itself!” into a whole new realm of possibility, Iain Graham and Catherine Losing’s brilliantly absurd photo shoot for the second issue of foodie publication The Gourmand tests the conductive abilities of various foodstuffs. And in actual fact, mum, you’re wrong. It might well do.
Entitled The Serpent That Ate Its Own Tail Catherine’s lens brings to life Iain’s amazing ideas such as an octopus clutching with one lilac tentacle at the blade of an electric carving knife, attached by a crocodile clip (à la physics lesson) to a neighbouring selection of sizzling scallops. Another image, captioned A collection of deep fried delicacies displays a heap of chicken’s feet and heads, keenly watched over by a row of pierced pig’s eyeballs. Also featured are gin and tonic glowing blue over a blazing UV light, a selection of woodland berries resting precariously on three rapidly melting white chocolate plates balanced in front of a whirring heater, an electric eel, and a lamb’s tongue gently roasting on a spit… Still hungry?
