Christopher Boffoli

Christopher Boffoli is a largely self-taught, fine art, commercial and editorial photographer. He began making art at an early age but only began to work with photography after receiving a camera for his birthday. His work includes editorial and documentary travel photography, but is most well known for the Big Appetites works, which features tiny figures posed against real food landscapes. These were inspired by the media that he was exposed to as a child as there were “many films and television shows that exploited both the dramatic and comedy potential of a juxtaposition of different scales: tiny-people in a normal-sized world.” Using every day objects along with every day foods, contrasting against Lilliputian dolls (sourced from Europe), he has been able to create scenes looking onto this miniature world.
