Photographer Navid Baraty is taking us on an amazingly vivid space odyssey with everyday food products like bourbon, salt, coconut milk, and soy sauce. In his second installment of WANDER Space Probe, the photographer gives new meaning to food photography by shooting his ingredients on an open Epson photo scanner, with seriously spaced-out results.
Baraty shoots his ingredients of choice on the scanner with the lid left open, curiously resulting in shots that mimic scenes from space. From bright star formations to ghostly nebulas, the mind-blowing images are all made using mundane items found in anyone’s kitchen.
To create the planet and moon shapes, Baraty uses a pancake to create a globe shape, along with a glass of bourbon, coconut milk, water, soy sauce and food coloring. His shots of foggy nebula are created by blending water, coffee, half & half, and food coloring. And those dreamy star constellations? They’re made from a simple mix of sugar and baking powder.
Food art has never looked so good.
