My sister, who is a pastry chef, recently passed a link onto me of some fantastic artistic food photography. Pierre Javalle and Akiko Ida, two photography students at Arts Décoratif in Paris have made a gallery featuring their photos of tiny little figurines on pastries and other food items.
Little miners dissecting chocolate blocks, tiny skaters in tart pans, sledders in a bowl of whipped cream, and wee shepherds walking over cauliflower. Not only is the design extremely detailed, but the photography is top notch. Really nice.
Too bad the flash website has a near-indecipherable navigation (which has nothing to do with the text being in French). Here's a quick guide: wait for the page to load, click the minimiam text, then use the silly little circles to navigate. The right-hand circle pulls up a hidden menu and the other two let you go between the photos in each set under the heading "Galerie". Good luck, it's worth the crap navigation.
