    Ptohograhpies: Roches Mammiferes – Dissimulaits

Photography: Cheeses on marbled backgrounds? Yes please

Posted by Maisie Skidmore,

Now, I don’t want to insult anybody’s intelligence, so I’m going to call a spade a spade. The latest photographic series from Ptohograhpies consists of a variety of cheeses photographed on colourful, marbled backgrounds. What it comes down to is cheese. I can’t tell you what kind of cheese they are because, while I’m happy to eat whatever comes in the selection, I can’t actually identify much beyond the realms of Philadelphia, Babybel and a lovely mild cheddar, and I also can’t tell you how the backgrounds were created, although I do vaguely remember a marbling lesson from my junior school days.

What I can say, however, is that these are nice photographs. In the words of the creators: “The Ptohograhpies are their own authors/subjects, and in the best case a study of life and its expression more than the one of any author.” So there you go!
