the creative couple of fine-art photographer davide luciano and food stylist claudia ficca have teamed up again to create ‘gourmet mouse traps’, a photography series showcasing various cheesy dishes, fit for the pickiest mouse, baited on the edge of traps. after a week-long cheese advertising shoot in new york, luciano, encouraged by his self-described ‘cheesy state of mind’ embraced the challenge of creating and photographing miniature, delectable food plates. creamy cheesecake, grilled cheese, layered lasagna, bagel & lox, and nachos are just a few of the gourmet, intricately crafted spreads that ficca cooked up. the ten, tiny dairy-based dishes are positioned on the catching device, set against changing environments and atmospheres. prop stylist maeve sheridan decorated each scene with diverse background wallpaper and lighting to give an impression that the traps were applied in different homes at different times throughout the day.
