On his series of photographs, titled Big Appetites, fine art photographer Christopher Boffoli has said: “I think it is especially resonant with children because as a child you live in an adult world that is out of scale with your body and proportions. And you constantly exercise your imagination around a world of toys that are further out of scale. As a child, I was an avid collector of Matchbox cars, a model railroader and a builder of models (cars, ships, and airplanes). I was fascinated, as many children and adults are, with tiny, meticulously detailed things.”
Boffoli’s book, Big Appetites: Tiny People in a World of Big Food, is available now.
