Wardrobe Snacks

When living in the city, you spend a lot of time in your car, the train, or the bus. And this time is often used for a quick bite or even a whole meal. Inspired by diners lacking the luxury of being seated at a table, photographer Kelsey McClellan and stylist Michelle Maguire shot the series Wardrobe Snacks.

The series shows "Michelle's stepdad who rests his sandwich on his thigh in between bites (hell with a plate!) while he blasts an action movie on his TV; a commuter cramped up on a crowded bus retrieving an item from a bag or pocket; a lunch-breaker on a park bench eating from her lap." The scenes are informal — perhaps even a bit awkward — yet the diner always appears to be comfortable and perfectly satisfied with his chosen snack, almost zen-like.
