Do any of these photos make you hungry? If so, we really hope you brought your own lunch, because nothing that you see here is actually food. These images are part of a still life photo series by Melbourne-based artist and photography student TQ Lee. Entitled Inedible, each photo depicts a tasty meal or enticing treat made of indigestible ingredients such as LEGO bricks, telephone cord, papier-mâché, makeup pads and hot shaving cream. After happily not feasting on any of it, you can refuse to wash it all down with glasses of Betadine, turpentine or waxed rolled socks.
Here Lee describes his series:
"As a child of the 80s I grew up with fond memories of still-life, photographic prints of breads, pastas, fruit and vegetables captured in the literal style of the era. The pictures hung in the houses of my family and friends and I would spend hours identifying all the ingredients and looking at every detail.
Nowadays, the humble still life has grown out of favour. Instead, colourful, reprinted advertisements of vintage European beverages add smiles to kitchen walls across Australia. And so, I challenged myself to put a contemporary twist on the food art trend of the 80s. This resulted in my series Inedible - photos of food made from unconventional ingredients.”

The truth is I love being alive. And I love feeling free. So if I can’t have those things then I feel like a caged animal and I’d rather not be in a cage. I’d rather be dead. And it’s real simple. And I think it’s not that uncommon.

Letter to my Fans
"Hello everybody, since my conviction in 2009 life for me as been an up hill battle. By the grace of God, I’ve been given the strength and endurance to keep moving forward. I could not do this without my family and fans so this is my gift to you.
Since my incarceration people have been using my name, my music and my image for their personal financial gain. These Blogs & Websites are selling Free Max B merchandise and states that the proceeds goes to my legal defense and commissary but the truth is that my family and I, had never received one penny from them. My family is fed up with all this fake supports and had now started legal procedures.
http://www.supportmaxb.com/ is an authentic Website developed and controlled solely by my family and friends. My goal is to make this the one and only official Max B website. Eventually when I get out the domain name will be changed to something more up to date but for now, the sole purpose of this Website is to keep my Fans updated with my case, raise some money for my legal defense and get the petition signed and reviewed by the government so I can get my conviction overturn.”
