In this Food & Family project I'm after the preferences in the kitchen of my dearest family members. Together with them, I have been thinking about their relationship with food, a certain kitchen, preparations, favourite ingredients, flavour or place. Welcome to this hungry series of family portraits.

This picture has a completely different origin then you might accept with the first glance. My first credits go to Sabrina, an excellent model to work with: very extravert, no shame and very patient.

It is extremely grateful to 'release' an idea during the photo session and experiment with different interpretations. When the final result rewards those efforts, the only thing that is left is my gratitude to the model, Sabrina, MUA Ine, Ken and other 'fair game' in the kitchen (stand-in Alessio and chocolatier John).

We started with spices and the Italian kitchen. We end with coffee, strawberries and chocolate.

What are your killers in the kitchen? How would you like to be photographed in this Food & Family idea? Please leave your comment below.

Bon appétit!

In this Food & Family project I'm after the preferences in the kitchen of my dearest family members. Together with them, I have been thinking about their relationship with food, a certain kitchen, preparations, favourite ingredients, flavour or place. Welcome to this hungry series of family portraits.

In a next stage I brainstorm about the concept of the pictures and decide which parts will be used in the picture. Decisions are made, but strong ideas can evolve while in progress. I start with a page full of impressions and elements that I can use, but instead I love to undress the composition of an image. In this way I focus on a minimum of elements instead of putting in as much content as possible.

This project offers lots of challenges. For the first time I choose a longer process that demands better preparation. Some concepts demand specific props or locations and in each composition off-camera flashes are used. This constrains me to deal with image, light, composition and content in another way.

I really love to get feedback. Don't hesitate to leave a message, share your thoughts or interesting comments.
