We've just added five new images to Photographer's Showcase artist Ernie Button's Cerealism portfolio, a collection of landscapes and underwater scenes constructed entirely from the fun and familiar shapes, colors and textures that make up breakfast cereal. "Having lived in Arizona for over 30 years, [adult] cereals upon close inspection resemble some of the shapes and colors and textures of the southwestern desert. I began to construct landscapes that would utilize the natural earth tones of certain cereals. I placed enlarged photographs of actual Arizona skies in the background of the cereal landscapes giving the final image an odd sense of reality." -- Ernie Button
