Bizarre Celebrity Fad Diets Photographed As Classical Still Life Paintings

Dan Bannino Still Diets series walks us through the strange and unusual history of eccentric fad diets as they've progressed over the centuries. This is proof that odd celebrity diet plans aren't unique to modern days.

Using dramatic light and carefully placed trinkets, Bannino depicts these fad diets as if they were classical still-life paintings. Henry VII's "Banquet Diet" of meat and wine spills out on the table. Piles of chicken nuggets cover the table of Usain Bolt. And Lady Gaga's "Baby Food Diet" sits in ominous glass jars.

By elevating these strict meals to a master's painting, Bannino makes the point that fad diets aren't just a modern development.

"The images are showing how this weirdness hasn’t changed throughout the centuries," he says of the series.
