An Avant-Garde Dinner With Dallas Artist Shayna Fontana

The Photographer Debuts Her Surrealist Dinner Plates and Platters Exclusively in Dallas

BY // 05.07.24

Photographer Shayna Fontana is known for her fabulous surrealist fashion editorials for magazines such as Elle, Harper’s Bazaar, and PaperCity. Her perspective-shifting reimagining of ordinary items has been translated into a collection of fine bone-porcelain plates and platters dubbed “Beyond the World,” and created in collaboration with New York City-based Prospect, available exclusively at Forty Five Ten.

Fontana’s culinary passion was ignited when she worked with Top Chef’s Padma Lakshmi on a cookbook and traveled to Asian food markets, which inspired Fontana to train her lens on culinary subjects in a unique manner. The plates and platters feature avant-garde close-ups of fish, vegetables, fruit, and noodles, and in true Fontana fashion, she evokes a vivid sense of beauty and whimsy in mundane objects. Salad plates are available at $88 each; pre-order platters and dinner plates, $240 and $160 respectively. Beyond the World by Shayna Fontana for Prospect, exclusively at Forty Five Ten.
