A native of Liverpool, England, Carl Warner has a background in advertising photography.
One day at the market, he came across some portabella mushrooms
and with the eye of an artist, imagined them as other-worldly trees.
They became the subject of his very first "foodscape".
Things really took off from there as Carl's creativity and talent produced many more foodscapes.
They're a fun type of trumpe l'oeil, (to deceive the eye), causing many to do double-takes.
Carl says this about his projects: "I need to fool the viewer into thinking it is a real scene at first glance.
It is the realization that the scene is in fact made of food that brings a smile to the viewer.
For me, that's the best part."
