Christopher Boffoli (born in 1969 in Worcester, Massachusetts) is a fine art photographer, photojournalist, independent filmmaker, and journalist based in Seattle. He is best known for his “Big Appetites” photographs series, in which tiny, detailed human figures pose in real food environments. His photos have been published in dozens of countries around the world, and are displayed in galleries and private collections in the United States, Canada, Europe, and Asia.
While in college, Boffoli started his own commercial photography company in Charleston, South Carolina, and later worked for 12 years as a philanthropic fundraiser for universities such as Dartmouth College and the London School of Economics. After recovering from a fall during a climbing expedition of Mount Rainier in which he suffered a broken leg and nerve and tendon damage, he decided that a career in academia was not as fulfilling as “doing creative things” and focused his energy on the arts.
