With the help of make-up artist Anastasia Parquet, French photographer Jonathan Icher picked five different nationalities and put their iconic foods into the mouths of his models.

The artworks playfully highlight the culinary stereotypes and heritage associated with certain nations. ff2 ff3 ff4 ff5 ff1 On the subject of innovative food projects… ‘ere are our picks of the restaurants with a creative edge in Shanghai: – Cheap and Chic: La Petite Fleur is the new benchmark for fantastic food, intimate vintage surroundings and attentive service (and you don’t have to pay through the nose for it!). – Quirky: Elefante offers the colours and aromas of the “Mediterraneo” with its sleek and stylish, yet warm and vibrant interior. – Experimental: Ultraviolet is the first restaurant of its kind attempting to unite food with multi-sensorial technologies in order to create a fully immersive dining experience. – Architecture: Azul Tapas Lounge The menu is mostly tapas with Spanish, South American, and Mediterranean inspiration. The real draw, however, is the space itself. Perched atop Ferguson Lanes new eight-story annex, it boasts a patio with sweeping views of the Puxi skyline. – Concept Store: 10 Corso Como Aside from the shopping you can refuel at the ground-floor pasticceria, a casual terrace café serving coffee and Italian pastries, or for a higher-end bite try the fourth floor restaurant and cocktail lounge which specializes in Italian seafood, meat and pasta staples.
