How Your Favorite Directors Celebrate Their Birthdays


When a food artist/photographer and set designer/installation artist team up for a collaboration, you can expect great things. Henry Hargreaves and Nicole Heffron collaborated on a yearlong photo series that we first learned about on Design You Trust. The photos celebrate the birthdays of cinema’s finest directors, including Hitchcock, David Lynch, and more. Each image includes objects, desserts, and other ephemera that speak to each filmmaker’s trademark style. John Waters’ cake includes pink flamingos, George Lucas’ tableau features a Stormtrooper Pez dispenser, and Brian De Palma’s birthday scene boasts a mountain of cocaine powdered sugar. Celebrate your favorite director’s birthday, below.
