Models Painted As Flags Eating Stereotypical Food From That Country in Jonathan Icher’s ‘Fat Flag’ Photo Series

Japan-Sushi

In his series “Fat Flag“, French photographer Jonathan Icher, with the help of makeup artist Anastasia Parquet, had each model decorated as their country’s flag while eating food stereotyped to their nation, possibly as a comment on global obesity or how food is used to pigeonhole cultures. Either way, the images are both disquieting and beautiful.
