As Hostess Brands Inc. deals with the flood of inquiries interested in reviving the Twinkies brand, photographer Dwight Eschliman turned his attention to the ingredients that make up the snack. In a recent project, Eschliman explores the health of this food by photographing each of the ingredient that goes into making a Twinkie.

The result is a gallery of 37 separate images, all looking nothing like a Twinkie, but making the viewer think about what goes into processed food when compared to natural food.

In a statement by the artist, he said:

I’ve never been a health nut. But I was raised by one. My mother wouldn’t let us kids within one hundred feet of meat, eggs, white bread, or any sort of processed food. She made homemade wheat gluten… More recently, when I became a parent, I started thinking a bit about food. I began to consider which foodstuffs are healthy and which are not… I love the idea of taking any object and deconstructing it down to its component parts. Essentially, I find great thrill in lining things up and photographing them. Thus, this project. The Twinkie is made up of 37 or so ingredients and this is what they look like.

You can purchase a book of this photographic work for $30 here.
