The Skulls series is a special project created for acclaimed chef Chris McDonald’s tapas restaurant, Cava. The challenge was to utilize the chef’s collection of pig skulls to create a photo series focusing on Cava’s extensive charcuterie menu and Iberian-based cuisine. Kristiansen combines high-contrast lighting and decorative arrangements to create modern vanitas that celebrate the source of a delicious food, and remind the viewer of the animal’s ultimate sacrifice.
