“Slices”: Delicious Treats For Your Eyes by Danny Eastwood

Award-winning photographer Danny Eastwood was not born with a camera around his neck. Instead, as a child, he honed his ability to hold his breath for long periods and played a lot of underwater hockey, eventually representing his country in his chosen sport.

Later on, he left high school to study architecture and industrial design. His dreams of being Howard Roark or Le Corbusier were foiled however, largely due to a complete incomprehension of even the most basic principles of physics – an affliction he puts down to possible cerebral hypoxia from playing obscure water sports.

His years of study left him with a slightly more welcome legacy however – an abiding love of the Fibonacci sequence, the smell of Polaroid, Wim Wenders and, ultimately, a Bachelor of Design, majoring in photography.

Danny Eastwood’s work with Australia’s leading Advertising Agencies, including Leo Burnett, DDB, Clemenger BBDO, McCann, The Monkeys and Ogilvy, has cemented his position as one of Australia’s leading lights in commercial photography. He has been recognised internationally at D&AD, the New York Advertising Festival and features in Luerzer’s Archive Top 200 Advertising Photographers.

“I’ve always loved Toiletpaper magazine and the work of artist Maurizio Cattelan and photographer Pierpaolo Ferrari. Their image of the soap with a bite out of it has always stuck with me – simple and beautiful but gag-inducing. This project of things you’d rather not put in your mouth evolved from there to the Hairsicle… and from there to many other iterations. This series also includes suggestions from Instagram – boy did they deliver on ideas for this,” he writes.
