Gingerbread houses are the fiddly edible cousins of Airfix aeroplane models, so to make to-scale models of landmark buildings must be rather difficult.
Artist Henry Hargreaves made these incredible depictions of famous art galleries from around the world using gingerbread, sweets, chocolate, candy floss and even bubblegum.
He said of the project: ‘The series allowed us to use techniques we hadn’t used before, we’ve never worked with gingerbread or sweets or chocolate to create solid structures.
‘Each gallery took between two and four days to build as we had to start with a foam base and work round that.
‘The Tate Modern was the hardest one to complete and even cracked and shrank a bit before we photographed it.’
The models were then photographed in the black and white manner reminiscent of classic architectural photographs.
These palaces of sweetness were commissioned by Dylan’s Candy store in Miami, using sweets the sweetshop sells in store.
