Society is moving away from knowledge of our food and understanding its origins as many processed foods produced today bear no resemblance to their original form. Convenience also plays a part in this where people are looking for the easiest and quickest ways to have a meal. The grotesque beauty, use of preservatives and unnatural elements used to sustain prolonged shelf-life is what inspired Des Moriarty. By using the still-life genre Moriarty looks at the food as objects and shot them drawing attention to their processed qualities. The images look at why and how these foods can stay in this temporally frozen state of beauty far removed from any decay.
