Jan Steinhilber blows up desserts for Beef! magazine

Talk about an interesting commission—German food magazine Beef! recently asked Jan Steinhilber to photograph desserts exploding.

“It turned out to be a really funny and very messy production,” says Jan. “They were planning a series on dessert recipes all containing spirits. So the idea was to literally blow them up, which we did with a special-effects team and fascinating results.”

Of course, what goes up must come down. “Even though we covered everything in the studio in plastic wrap, it took ages to clean the equipment from the remains of the sticky sweets,” says Jan, “and we still had to repaint the studio afterward.”
