Europe spotlight for longtime WSB contributor Christopher Boffoli


(Photo from ‘Disparity,’ published here in 2008)
You may know Christopher Boffoli best for breaking-news photographs here on WSB, over the past three-plus years – like the ones from today’s bank robbery (after he spotted two of the apparent robbers fleeing down his Junction alley). But tonight, readers in the U.K. have learned about him as the photographer who’s introduced tiny figurines to food (among other things), in shots like the one above. His ongoing series “Disparity” has just been showcased by both the Daily Mail (here) and The Telegraph (here). We asked Christopher how the UK found him; he explained, “I was recently approached by some editors from a newspaper/magazine syndication company in Europe who saw the image on a professional photography website called 500px. They did an interview a couple of weeks ago and asked for a bunch of images. I didn’t really know what would come of it. But then today a friend in the UK saw it and sent me the link.”

    Great and wonderfully weird photo, which could hatch some very bizarre dreams. Congratulations to Christopher!

    those photos are great. I like one of the comments on the daily mail; “are they any good with small potholes’

    I love these pics! They’re so fun and whimsical. You should frame some of them up and share/sell them at the WS Art Walk.

    These are wonderful Christopher! I especially liked the Butter Business Bureau and the Oreo cookie shoveler! So clever!

    these are great! I’ve wanted to purchase images that look like these since seeing some in Spain by artist Willy Rojas on my travels back in 2003 (couldn’t afford or tote those around at the time). i’ll look forward finding these locally for purchase.

    Where do you find or how do you create the tiny figurines?

    Wonderful work!
