Christopher Boffoli is a fine art, commercial and editorial photographer. He began making visual art at an early age but only began exploring photography after he received a camera as a birthday gift in his teens. Largely self-taught, Christopher gained experience as a student journalist in high school and college, eventually founding his own commercial photography company while he was still an undergraduate. His broad body of current work includes editorial and documentary travel photography. But he is best known for his Big Appetites fine art work which to date has been published in more than 100 countries around the world. He is routinely hired to do advertising work for major brands and his fine art photographs may be found in galleries and private collections in the United States, Canada, Europe and Asia. He currently lives and works in Seattle, Washington, USA.
Marrying inspired photographs of real food and tiny people with equally inspired captions, photographer Christopher Boffoli creates a smart, funny, quirky vision of what it means to play with your food. The scenes are hilarious and outlandish— a farmer shovels a pasture full of cow pies, aka chocolate chips; hikers pause at a rest stop to take in a magical mushroom forest. And the captions surprise with their cleverness and emotional truth. Of the proudly gesticulating little chef amid the macarons: “Right on cue, Philippe stepped up to take all of the credit.” Of the tiny bather up to her chin in waves of blue Jell-O: “In her continuing search for a husband, Gladys decided it was best to put herself in situations where she needed to be rescued.” Of the broad-shouldered technician spreading condiments on a hot dog: “Gary always uses too much mustard. But no one can say so. It’s a union thing.”
