Photographer Christopher Boffoli has a wide-ranging body of work, from photojournalism to portraits to incredible Western landscapes, but our foodie heart belongs, naturally, to his Disparity series, which uses miniature figurines arranged on food landscapes to tell a tale. And like his body of work, these tiny tableaux offer a range of stories that run the gamut from sweet to strange and back again... just the way we like it.
