Australian photographer T.Q. Lee likes to recreate his favorite dishes using non-edible items for his appropriately named series, “Inedible”. Lee told Mashable that, “[The] series is both a fun visual pun and a comment on the artificial nature of convenience food.” He used a variety of unusual and sometimes thought-provoking ingredients to make his dishes, including tire rubber, Lego bricks, hazardous chemicals, sponges and, yes, even his own urine. The photos are meant to mimic the kinds of food pics that pop up on billboards and on Instagram daily. “There certainly appears to be a growing objectification even fetishism surrounding food — the idea of shooting before you eat, has become almost a custom,” said Lee.
