Playing with food: Stephanie Gonot’s colorful culinary photography

Photographer Stéphanie Gonot’s food photos aren’t the stylized, sexy kind you’d see on the cover of magazines like Bon Appetit. Images in her ‘Fad Diets’ series are frightening visual documents of some of the weirder diets out there, while also being striking experiments in color and texture. They may not make your mouth water, but they are a lot of fun, and might just make you reconsider that crash diet…

Here’s a selection of her work, from ‘Fad Diets’ and other series’. Her website, is well worth checking out.

The ‘Five Bite’ diet involves eating whatever you want for lunch or dinner but only to have five bites of it.  Photo from the ‘Fad Diets’ series by Stéphanie Gonot.

Very nice! Thanks for sharing.


Good or even interesting food photography this is not.

I assume she has Linda McCartney syndrome and has a famous partner or some other good reason for being spotted


The ice cream cone is certainly erotic. Lots of play in her photographs.


Great for artistic purposes, but I wouldn’t want to eat any of it looking like that in an ad.


Natasha rules! Very talented food photographer

My food looks more appetising and is certainly healthier than this.


You’re right!

Thank you! 🙂


@ Alpha. You’re culinary work is colorful, vibrant and drawing the viewers attention to what matters in a very appealing way. A little more bright than most, but it works in a positive way. I like it.

Interesting ideas but low IQ


They’re cute… and its a unique idea…. the photography is certainly not all that great though.. (ie: the last photo is too narrow of field in my opinion).. and the grass in front of the “bowl” of fruit loops is distracting (a clean dirt area in front would be more dramatic..) Kudos for a good idea though.
