It's a cream cake dangling from a fishing rod — every dieter's nightmare! Actually, it's a photograph of a pile of papers, topped with a raspberry and suspended from a piece of wire. Sarah Lynch builds such sculptures and uses her camera to create such elegant illusions around simple, delectable objects like plums and bubbles and freshly fallen leaves. Her tricky photographs are hanging at Klompching Gallery until April 25. —Emma Pearse
