The project playfully shows you the amounts of food athletes need to consume in order to be in their best shape. Since a 2000+ calories diet couldn't possibly fit on a regular plate, the artists took their ideas to a larger scale and worked with huge plates and cutlery, resulting in a strikingly clean composition.

I wanted to show you this project because this is so different from what we have previously discussed. With a little imagination and curiosity, you too can come up with such original ideas and transform them in amazing photographs, starting from the tips and tricks you already know.
