We were interested in Jon Chonko's work because of his view on one of life's needs: food. By using a tool mainly used for office work: the flatbed scanner, he has given it a new life and uses it as a photographic vehicle. The combination of the two gave birth to Scanwiches. The intricacies of sandwiches and their unique dissection reflect the food-oriented world we live in.
