Gustav Almestål’s photos of food are utter filth

by thewheatandthechaff


The sensual connection between food and sex is a well-established idea, manifested particularly in aphrodisiacs, those edibles believed to be imbued with some sort of direct line to the erogenous zones. For a previous issue of Dave Lane and Marina Tweed’s food magazine The Gourmand, Swedish photographer Gustav Almestål produced a series called O Gluttony! Divine gluttony! which fixates on various foodstuffs – including papaya, brie and renowned aphrodisiac oysters – with almost pornographic relish.

Now the pair are back again with a second series of beautifully shot, mildly surreal foodie images. Both sets featured below:
