Even though he knew the likelihood of shark encounters was low, Eric still had anxiety about the dive.

Seattle-based photographer Christopher Boffoli photographs miniature figurines performing varied tasks such as mowing an orange peel or excavating a berry pie in his Disparity Series, a humorous commentary on labor, portion size and American consumption. Part of his Big Appetites photographs include his latest series Edible Worlds which will be exhibited at the Winston Wächter Gallery in Chelsea, starting on June 21, 2012. Not only are the photos humorous, but so are the titles (Canoe au LaitDeep Tea Diver…) and the captions, see above for a sampling.

    As a good friend once told me, “Everything is better as miniatures.” And as I enjoy the wonderful photographed scenes by Christopher Boffoli, I realize how right she was.
