His photographs have been shown in Canada and the United States. Reflecting his social and political interests, Blanchards practice is characterized by commentary, irony and investigation. At he is showing Fabricated Food, a series of photographs of tabletop installations made with edibles. The pictures are accompanied by information on the impact of globalizing the agribusiness, the environmental repercussions of industrial farming and health problems caused by additives such as the sweeteners and artificial colours that pervade the North American diet. In addressing health and environmental concerns, the artist seeks to raises the veil on the North American food industry.
