Meat Art Meets America
Dominic Episcopo's series "Meat America" features American symbols, former presidents, cultural icons and national landmarks in their most raw form: made out of meat



Many of us eat meat on a daily basis but have we ever stopped to consider its artistic potential? In a new series of photographs entitled “Meat America,” photographer Dominic Episcopo does just that by making meat his muse.  

The rare (pun intended) collection features American symbols, former presidents, cultural icons and national landmarks in their most raw form: made out of meat. According to Episcopo, “Meat America” is “not just a photo story, art print bonanza and upcoming book” but it’s “a state of mind, an eye-opening and artery-clogging tour of America’s spirit of entrepreneurship, rebellion and positivity.”Episcopo’s subjects are carefully sculpted, well-framed and decidedly narrative, reflecting part of American culture in each shot. A section of the new photo series will also include ” The United Steaks of America” – images of carved out sirloins and ribeyes that resemble several states in America, including the above shot of Texas. 

Episcopo is a Philadelphian photographer and has made a name for himself most notably in the world of music photography by taking pictures of big name acts, like the Beastie Boys.
