Photographer Ted Sabarese explores our desires through complex costumes made of real food.

Styling his models with all kinds of food items, from vegetables to waffles, photographer Ted Sabarese explores what he calls his fascination with the relationship between people and what they eat. The real food each model wears represents a meal they were craving.

The photographer explains how it was done:

It was a wild process creating the outfits. About 15 people were involved and each look took hours to assemble.  The artichoke grown was designed by Daniel Feld and Wesley Nault of Project Runway fame and took over 6 hours to finish (the model stood the entire time while they attached each, individual leaf).
