italian photographer dan bannino has translated his fascination and obsession with food into a series of photograph still lifes. the compositions are of various celebrity fad diets, positioned and composed in the style of old master paintings. for ‘still diet’, bannino represents ridiculous trends in weight-loss programs from beyonce’s ‘master cleanse diet’ of hot water, lemon juice, maple syrup and cayenne pepper to gwyneth paltrow’s strict detox diet of solely fruits, vegetables and nuts. ‘I’ve tried to capture the beauty that lies in this terrible constriction of diets and deprivation‘ bannino describes. historical figures are conceptualized as well, dreamed up to reveal what henry VIII and lord byron might consider as a meal, with the ‘aim to show how this weirdness hasn’t changed even since the 15th century.’
