Photographer Sam Kaplan Constructs Tall Pyramids and Vertiginous Pits out of Cookies and Candy
Multidisciplinary photographer Sam Kaplan pushes the limits of still life, one painstaking millimeter at a time. For his latest series of images titled "Pits and Pyramids" Kaplan constructed incredible architectural structures out of cookie sandwiches and candy. Using these seemingly boring objects as bricks, Kaplan built perfect edible structures in his studio and then photographed them in primarily static, symmetrical compositions using nothing but great lighting and meticulous attention to detail. "I guess 'precise' is a good way to describe it," he says of his own work. "Maybe even a little OCD"
