William Kass

William Kass is a photographer who plays with his food, to create small intricate scenes in the viewpoint of life as experienced by miniature little people. He uses small, plastic toy figures with that of food and other everyday, home items, including that of spoons, cocktail sticks and cocktail umbrellas. An orange can become a juicy, sparkling pool, chilli peppers turn into bonfires, and a zucchini becomes a cannon in a circus show. There are also scenes in which a group of men go fishing for large sashimi, an ear of corn becomes an obstacle to climb, and a bunch of green grapes are transformed into a glamorous stage for a dramatic performance. Kass uses the viewpoint from the frame of his camera in order to set up his miniature scenes, and to continue with the viewpoint of the miniature people.

However, I enjoyed the thought of the traditional games being impossible more than food scenes. […]
