We're obsessing over the latest installment of David Sykes' "Faux Food" series.

Aided in design by stylist Jessica Dance, David has been able to create a memorable series of "Faux Food" photographs, capturing scenes cleverly comprised entirely of wool.

"Love it. Hate it. Just don't forget it" is the slogan currently running in conjunction with the latest ad campaign for Marmite.

Shot by photographer David Sykes, the "Marmite Neglect" campaign plays upon the contradictory feelings many UK consumers have for the historic condiment, which, with yeast extract as its main ingredient, calls for a particularly acquired taste.  

Shown below, David's images are the focus of the the company's latest advertising feat, shot with London ad agency adam&eveDDB and appearing in print ads across the UK.

Depicting fully-stocked cupboards with jars of Marmite tucked negligently in the background, the ads offer a comical acknowledgement of the dichotomy between those consumers who "love" the product and those who "hate it." Things are taken an even wittier step further in Marmite's t.v. commercials. Channeling real-life animal rescue programs, the television ads follow a fictional "Marmite Rescue Unit" in its search to uproot neglected jars of Marmite from negligent consumers' homes before re-housing them with loving families.

Since its release, the "Marmite Neglect" campaign has received an outpouring of praise for its clever approach to this famous schism in consumer sentiments. The campaign has been raved about on numerous blogs, and even named "Best Outdoor Ad"!

There are only 19 days until Christmas...and we're not the only ones counting!

Photographer David Sykes has relaunched his holiday ADVENTGRAM project, a recreation of the twenty-five day Advent Calendar - with a twist! Begun in 2011, the project combines David's playful and innovative artistic style with the ultimate social media platform for picture-sharing: Instagram. Each day in December, the photographer finds and shoots the date, and then uploads his pictures using Instagram. From now until Christmas Day, David will be sharing his photographs, and is inviting Instagram users to join along!

Click on the image below from last year's Adventgram calendar to learn more about David's project, and how you can join in on the holiday fun.
