Born in 1963 in Liverpool, England, Carl Warner attended the Maidstone College of Art originally for illustration, but soon discovered his true passion was photography. He then transferred to the London College of Printing to focus on photography, film and television.
Carl started out in landscape and still photography, eventually working many years in the advertising industry. Seeking new inspiration and direction, he happened upon a market with Portobello mushrooms that reminded him of trees from an alien world. This would become his first foodscape and the start of a new and exciting direction in his career.
Warner’s foodscapes have garnered international media attention and led to books, interviews and merchandising. The success has allowed Warner to pursue artistic and personal projects like the bodyscape series below.
Rather than food, Warner uses the human form to create fantasy landscapes. Chests, knees, shins and backs form the rolling hills and rocky landscapes in this intriguing series.
