Foodscapes
& collect
The ‘Foodscapes’ by Carl Warner are created in Carl’s London studio where they are built on top of a large purpose built triangular table top. The scenes are photographed in layers from foreground to background and sky as the process is very time consuming and so the food quickly wilts under the lights. Each element is then put together in post production to achieve the final image. These images can take up to two or three days to build and photograph and then a couple of days retouching and fine tuning the images to blend all the elements together.
Carl Warner was born in Liverpool, England in 1963. At the age of seven he moved to Kent with his parents and as an only child spent hours in his bedroom listening to music, drawing and creating worlds from his imagination, inspired by the posters on his walls by artists such as Salvador Dali and Patrick Woodroofe and the record sleeve designs of Roger Dean and the work of Hipgnosis.
He began his career by going to Maidstone College of Art. After a year’s foundation course at the college he moved to the London College of Printing in 1982 to do a three year degree course in photography, film and television. In 1985 he left to become assistant to David Lowe, a photographer based in Knightsbridge. After a year of assisting he set up a studio next to David and began working for ad agencies, design groups and PR houses.
