Norweigen photographer Christopher Jonassen reveals the darker side of the frying pan with his series, “Devour”, where the wear and tear on the bottoms of these kitchen staples are captured to resemble the frozen surfaces, red dust and crater-dotted terrain of our intergalactic surroundings.

Jonassen draws attention to ‘devour’ standing for to ‘eat up greedily, to destory, consume and waste’. He took inspiration from a quote by French existentialist writer, Jean-Paul Sartre, who said, “To eat is to appropriate destruction”.
