Candy as Art: Emily Blincoe's Colorful Candies

images courtesy of Emily Blincoe

Artist Emily Blincoe has embarked on a photography project called Colors Organized Neatly, and a number of her images focus on candies organized by color. Three examples are included in this blog post but if you'd like to delve further into these oddly comforting compositions, head over to Blincoe's full flickr set or the blog post published on Colossal. Maybe it's because I work in museum collections, but I love the way she has divided, shaped, and organized these sugar-filled tableaus. Thanks to Eliza for introducing me to the series!
