‘I love to do both food styling and food photography, because I love food, products, how they look, flavor, their shape, color, freshness or how they are changing and become old and skinny and I love to make still-life photos: work on accessories, composition, style and light create per-size mood of the picture and story it tells. Every little and common thing can inspire me to create something new.
First of all I choose pictures which I’d like to recreate with food. I love all pictures I choose for many different reasons. Some of them I saw in gallerias, some of them I saw a long time ago but remember and feel inspiration and admiration every time I see it again. When I choose paintings for this project I try to choose paintings in food colors and not in very complicated forms.
After that I draw sketches to try imagine which products will be the best match to art by it’s colors, textures, forms and point of origin. Than I bought products and made pictures: piece by piece!’ – Tatiana Shkondina
