Stunning, Close-Up Views of Food Inspire Art

Photographer and artist Ajay Malghan's pictures use food as a medium. Seen through his lens, what we eat becomes abstract and mysterious landscapes, wildfires, people dancing, or radioactive waste. The video content team from Whole Foods Market created this short documentary about Malghan's work to explore the beautiful intersection of food, art, and science.

The Short Film Showcase spotlights exceptional short videos created by filmmakers from around the Web and selected by National Geographic editors. We look for work that affirms National Geographic's mission of inspiring people to care about the planet. The filmmakers created the content presented, and the opinions expressed are their own, not those of the National Geographic Society.
