Artist Dan Cretu sees food as more than something to be eaten.

The artist and photographer creates impressive mini sculptures of everyday objects, using everything from orange peel to salami.

While much of his work involves recreating gadgets such as cameras (above), stereos and keyboards, from food, he has also turned his talents to other everyday objects such as footballs, trainers and tubes of paint.
