Who isn't interested in food? Everyone eats. My interest in food photography began in 2016 when I made a small series about frozen food called Frozen. After working on Frozen I began to experiment with food photography, which evolved into Processed.
Processed was created as an experiment to look into heavily processed foods. Which are extremely convenient with regard to time and prices.
Having worked in a grocery store, I saw these processed food products were being purchased at an alarmingly common rate. Respected food journalist Melania Warner said “... there's an estimated 5,000 different additives that are allowed to go into our food”. In this body of work I choose to photograph products that are popular in most grocery stores. I staged the meals in a formal setting with color theory relationships in mind, using household plates and placemats. I wanted to present the food as aesthetically pleasing and visually ironic to the viewer. These plates appear to be ready-to-eat and yet, are filled with unpronounceable additives.
