Brooklyn-based still life and fashion photographer Henry Hargreaves, deep fried old gadgets to show the similarity between tech culture and fast food. Both are quickly devoured and then discarded because of our appetite for the newest product.
“I like to play with food and the juxtaposition of different worlds. I found a video of some japanese kids trying to deep fry a PSP and eat it, it didn’t work and they made a mess of it, but I loved the idea and thought it could be expanded and photographed in a beautiful way.
Electronics have become almost a holy device, the way a new apple device sends people out of their minds. But as soon as the next model comes out the last is immediately forgotten.” – Henry Hargreaves
