photographer sam kaplan‘s obsession with organization has led to a still life series that sees candies, cookies and tea cakes turn into semi-architectural structures. the lensman has formed ‘pits and pyramids’ using treats that range from colorful confections to cheese sandwiches. spilling from the edges of the frame, the edibles are arranged triangular towers and deep descending craters, with each type, tone or style of snack forming a single layer. the multiple tiers of sweet and savory bites and their color-coordinated qualities create mesmerizing patterns and geometries that change their perception from food to architectural formation.
