Today is Super Bowl Sunday, celebrating the 45th annual Championship Game of the NFL. What better time to do a post about Meat America, the very carnivorous creativity by photographer Dominic Episcopo? Known for his United Steaks of America series, Dominic has created more carnivorous art for his upcoming book, Meat America. Here are some Grade A Prime images you can really sink your teeth into - sorry, I couldn't resist.

Don't Tread On Meat:
MEAT AMERICA is not just a photo story, art print bonanza and upcoming book by renowned photographer Dominic Episcopo. According to Dominic, it's a state of mind, an eye-opening and artery-closing tour of America’s spirit of entrepeneurship, rebellion and positivity. It celebrates our appetite for insurmountable odds, limitless aspiration, and immeasurable success. A way for us to combine a few of our favorite things. Meat. Quotes. Facts. Photography. And the indefinable adjective that is “American.”
