In Photos: Taking Pumpkin Carving to the Next Level
“Pumpkin carving is an ephemeral art,” says Marc Evan. “The fact that pumpkins rot does not diminish their beauty or the experience of seeing them in person – if anything, it makes it more special.” Over the past 10 years, Evan and childhood friend Chris Soria have made a business out of carving pumpkins – and not just to scare. Maniac Pumpkin Carvers in Brooklyn also creates photo-realistic portraits, city skylines, album covers and movie posters – for the likes of the New York Yankees and CNN as well as individuals.
“We’ve made one at Halloween for the Museum of Modern Art in New York for the past eight years, based on works in their collection by the likes of Matisse and Magritte,” says Evan. “It’s always one of our most intricate pieces.”
