Photography can be a very beautiful thing. Often times it can breathe new life in ordinary objects. Photography can often fool us, wouldn’t you agree? That sculpture is a pile of trash. That person is really a tree. That child is really an old man. That planet is really an old pot.
Yes, in a series of fine photography entitled “Devour”, Christopher Jonassen turned an otherwise mundane kitchen tool, the common frying pan, into a masterpiece.
Starting this collection ten years ago while studying abroad in Australia, Christopher continues to add new pots with different textures and finishes to the series.
But how does he get the final product to come out so…realistic? Honestly, “the older, the better” is the only way to describe it. Along with a little oil (to bring out the texture), the right lighting, and the special touch of Photoshop, Christopher could soon be working for NASA.
