no matter where in the world you are, you’ll find people who love to have brunch. a mid-day snack to satisfy a pre-lunch appetite is a commonplace practice from new york to marrakech, with the flavors, spices and ingredients of each culture influencing popular dishes.

 

illustrator bea crespo and photographer andrea g.portoles team up in the creation of an ongoing photographic series called ‘brunch city‘. using food as an artistic medium, the duo use everything from bread crust to yogurt cups to display architectural landscapes and scenes relevant to the city’s character and quality. gaudi’s famed cathedral is cut from paper and placed atop a slice of catalan tomato bread, typical to the region; rome’s colosseum is set atop a towering stack of gelato; landmark structures found in paris are placed into a golden-brown croissant. the collection fuses together photography, travel, crafts and cuisine by reminding city inhabitants of the overlooked cultural connection between their urban surroundings and the food that defines it.
