Why do I shoot food? I have been asking myself this question lately, what is it that makes me prefer food to, for example, shooting people? Or nature photography? Or any other of all the incredible things to photograph in this world. Well, first of all I love food, I enjoy cooking and buying food. I think food in its original state, as ingredients, is beautiful and innumerable are the various ways you can portray a vegetable or a fruit.
Another thing I like about food is that it keeps still. No cucumber or apricot blinks or moves when they are supposed to stand still, disturbing the composition. Sure, it is not always easy to catch the expression of an eggplant, but if you give it time, you get there. You see its vegetable soul if you are careful.
Food photography is still life photography, it's a frozen moment of a meal, the traces of an event that has been a promise of what is to come.
