Lollipop icons make sweet satire

ITALIAN photographer Massimo Gammacurta comes Lolli-Pop, a recently released coffee table book chock full of edible icons.

In this latest conceptual still life project, Gammacurta handcrafts well-known logos — from Apple to Dior — using real hardball candy.

Through their (re)construction, the brands are given ‘a new meaning through the materiality and abstract action painting dynamic gestures’.

Now that’s some sweet eye candy.
