Photographer Michael Bodiam’s Inventive Still Lifes Reveal the Diets Behind Sporting Success

Gymnastic

Have you ever been curious of what Olympic athletes eat that make them super great in their sports? Thanks to designer Sarah Parker and photographer Micheal Bodiam, we’d get the chance to take a cute glimpse of what the meals of these athletes are comprised of. Parker and Bodiam based their project from the diets Olympian nutritionist Dan Benardot recommends for high-caliber athletes. Each serving captured usually includes carefully organized portions of chocolate milk, peanut butter, bagels, bananas and flax seeds.

Set designer Sarah Parker used laser-cut MDF, card and paper to develop the place settings around the miniature-looking real food products. Says the creative: “I wanted people to be able to draw direct comparison between the diets, and to produce something quite playful that subtly hinted at the sport each athlete participated in.”

Dan Benardot’s latest book Advanced Sports Nutrition-2nd edition is out now.
