Kristina Lechner, a graphic designer who can't cook, decided to make items look like food instead.

In a photography series called 'food not food', which involve creating several fake food made entirely out of regular household items.

Kristina says she started the project out of a need for creative outlet and a need to do do something entirely out of the box.
