This (?) questions: where does food photography start and where does it end? Am I a food photographer when I submerge a fogu fin in the swimming pool of Sources de Caudalie? No, of course not. Looking at the Planète Marx photos, we can no longer say that it is a recipe book. So it is a false debate. Have we asked ourselves whether Arcimboldo was a food painter because he used vegetable to create portrait? I am a photographer, I paint with light.
, creative director, designer, producer of food art or commercials, food stylist for great chefs like Thierry Marx or Alain Ducasse, I define food as the subject of a constantly mutating work. Still life photography, either conceived for a cookbook, food packaging, or for art or design object always has the same motivation in my eyes: it must be an artistic photograph that we can consider to be a modern, abstract art painting.
My work expresses itself just like the nature inspiring me: freely.
I like getting an order and put it at the service of my work and viceversa. In every collaboration, I constantly use new ways of expression where image entirely becomes a means of expression: the tool of a prospective and emotional design. The food communication agency was born from this artist.
