Photographer Henry Hargreaves has created Deep Fried Gadgets, a wonderful series where he deep fries popular pieces of electronics and then takes tasty photos of them. His complete collection of crispy gadgets are available to view on his website.
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. This is a commentary about the similarities between tech culture and fast food. Quickly devoured and then discarded because of our appetite for the newest product. by Henry Hargreaves, styled by Caitlin Levin
