With these maps made out of food the world geography is much easier to digest

1

New York-based photographer Henry Hargreaves and food stylist Caitlin Levin created an interesting mapping project. They’ve created maps of countries using famous delicacies from each region.

All the maps are beautifully crafted in the style of the old school maps. You can see a huge attention to detail in every piece of that project. Artists used the most typical and/or famous foods from each country.

India far instance has been made out of spices including cardamom pods and chili flakes. The US has been mapped as an array of corn-based products, France as cheese and crackers, and Italy out of tomatoes.

What can we say… The world geography just became a lot easier to digest…

Although the project is already 2 years old I love it so much that I still decided to share it.
