La Figa: Visions of Food and FormErotica // Wednesday, 27 Jul 2011
La Figa: Visions of Food and Form is a book about natural beauty and fresh flavors. Featuring a spectacular collection of sensual photography – models wearing nothing but the edible creations of James Beard award-winning chef Tiberio Simone – it examines the relationship between food, touch, and the ingredients that make life delicious.
La Figa‘s elegant and tasteful nude images are the culmination of a five-year collaboration between Simone and photographer Matt Freedman. Using the human body as his canvas, and natural fresh ingredients as both his paint and his adhesives, Simone has developed a new art of food and form. The synergy of his ephemeral artwork with Freedman’s photography is magical – producing a series of breathtaking images that will stir your soul, pique your curiosity, and tune you in to your most primal instincts for flavor and pleasure.
