A Tribute to Budgie
“The photo is part of a photo series based on birds created by Argentine Photographer Agustín Nieto and American Food Stylist Anna Keville Joyce. We are developing the series as a tribute to Anna’s budgie bird back in the United States with the idea of exhibiting the complete series of photos as a collection.
The photo concept is an interpretation of a flamingo using only food elements, with components of the image design inspired by the illustrations of Charley Harper. The flamingo is made up of beet-dyed shredded coconut, crushed cereal, sesame seeds, kiwi seeds, cinnamon, and almond. The water is made up of sliced radishes and grapes, with a base of kiwi and brown rice, and aquatic plants of grape stems. The photo was taken in Agustin’s photography studio in Buenos Aires, Argentina, during July 2013.“- Agustín Nieto
