One Third by Klaus Pichler

Rotting food probably never looked better. These intriguing, yet slightly disgusting still life photographs are Austrian photographer Klaus Pichler‘s reaction to the nature of global food waste. With his series One Third he describes the connection between individual wastage of food and globalized food production. Each still life features some type of rotting fruit set against a black background, capturing an unexpected beauty in decay as well as our attention.
