British photographer Carl Warner creates amazing foodscapes: landscapes constructed entirely from fruits and vegetables, cheeses, breads, fish, meat and grains. At first glance the landscapes look real, and it is only on second glance that the viewer realises that the scenes are made entirely out of food. A book of his work, entitled Carl Warner?s Food Landscapes, is published by Abrams and is available at all good book stores and via Amazon.
Coralscape: an underwater scene with coral made of broccoli, tropical fish made of various fruits and vegetables, and a pineapple and coconut island
The book launch is taking place at St Pancras International on Thursday 14th October. For one day (7am-10pm), the upper floor of the station will house a photographic exhibition of fourteen of Carl Warner?s foodscapes. The event will be kicked off with the unveiling of the ‘Chocolate Express’a real-life landscape constructed entirely out of chocolate, which Carl has created specially for the launch.
Autumn Flakes: an autumnal landscape made enirely out of breakfast cereals
Often compared to a modern day Guiseppe Arcimboldo, Carl Warner offers visitors to St Pancras International a very different way of getting their five a day. In this gallery, we look at some of the foodscapes he has produced over the years.

He spends a lot of time staring at vegetables in supermarkets, which can make him seem a little odd. However, finding the right shaped broccoli to use for a tree is an all-important task.
Fishscape: with rocks made of oyster shells and crab claws, boats made of marrows and asparagus, and a shining, slivery, slippery sea of fish
