If anyone told Akiko Ida and Pierre Javelle to never play with their food, they didn't listen. The husband and wife duo met at the Paris "Arts Decoratifs" art school while studying photography. Ida has always had an interest in gastronomy, and Jayelle's fascination with drawing, illustrations and photography stems back to the comics he read as a child.
Since 2002, they've been creating and photographing quirky dioramas with food and miniature figurines for a series they call "MINIMIAM," from the French words for "miniature" and "yummy."
Get ready to get hungry as you check out their imaginative world of little people living their lives across big-food landscapes. See more of their artwork at Minimiam.com.
