That’s the name of a project by photographer Steve Aishman. It’s a series of 9 photos of various types of fast food being thrown in the air, and then photographed.
Steve claims he is:
“Interested in working with a new philosophy that does not reward the viewer for making an association between what they are seeing and something they have seen before. Rather, with my work, I want to reward the viewer for seeing the world with new eyes.”
Well I’m not an art critic, but I do love this series of photos. I do, in fact, feel like I’m looking at the world with new eyes. Here I am seeing food items I’ve seen a million times, but captured in a view that my eyes have never experienced seeing this item in before. There is something about seeing food crisply and clearly captured in mid-air…no plate, no bowl, no tray, no strings.
Do yourself a favor, check out all 9 photos on Steve’s site and see them in their full size and detail.
