food, art, and architecture come together in a series of gingerbread constructions by brooklyn-based photographer henry hargreaves and food stylist caitlin levin. landmark museums from around the world such as the tate modern in london, the solomon r. guggenheim museum, in new york, and paris’ louvre are crafted and constructed from candy pieces like bubble gum, licorice, and chocolate. the sweet scale models are carefully reconfigured from the original buildings and finally photographed in black and white, creating dynamic and dramatic views of the confectionery creations. the images will be shown at dylan’s candy bar in miami for art basel 2013.
