Twinkie, Deconstructed and Photographed

Taking a page out of Twinkie Deconstructed, photographer Dwight Eschliman has put together a stark photo essay on the "37 Or So Ingredients" that make up a Twinkie.

From wheat flour to folic acid to glucose, monocalcium phosphate, and monoglyceride, Eschliman's series of simple, striking images brings a sense of visual drama to one of the country's most iconically pedestrian desserts.
