Funny Miniature Scenes Playfully Set Upon Delicious Foods

The clever stylings of these culinary masters feature witty arrangements and subtle humor that will make you smile. Commercial food photographers Pierre Javelle and Akiko Ida have been developing their playfully miniature series since 2002.
