Christopher Boffoli is a Seattle-USA-based photographer, artist, writer and filmmaker. With a background in literature and writing, he worked for more than a dozen years in the field of Philanthropy, raising private money for elite schools like Dartmouth College and the London School of Economics. Then a couple of life-changing events compelled him to pursue a full-time creative career. Boffoli was a resident of Lower Manhattan and was a first-hand witness to the events of September 11, 2001. Just a few years later he was nearly killed while mountaineering at high elevation on Mt. Rainier in the Cascades. Since that time Boffoli has traveled the world, working as an editorial and documentary photographer. At home in Seattle he also works as a journalist and fine art photographer. Boffoli uses meticulously hand-painted scale figures, in real food environments, to create engaging and humorous scenes that also offer commentary on America's often dysfunctional relationship with food.
Christopher Boffoli's work has been published, online and in print, in more than 95 countries around the world. Images from his Big Appetites series can be found in galleries and private collections in Canada, the US, Europe and Asia.
