Several pounds of raw meat, a really good camera, sculpting skills and a bunch of creativity was necessary when photographer and artist Dominic Episcopo accomplished this awesome project.
The series is called “Meat America” and it celebrates America’s appetite for “decadent and iconoclastic deliciousness”, and you can easily see that the meat pieces are shaped in some of the U.S. states, as well as in Michael Jackson, Elvis and Ben Franklin.
Some of the pieces are even shaped in well-known words like “LOVE” and “WTF” that may represent the young generation. He didn’t use any fancy studio for this meat project; he used his own kitchen where he and his wife cooked all the meat afterwards and ate it.
Episcopo is not the only one who has used food to create art; these geeky guys has an amazing gingerbread collection to show.
