Amsterdam-based photographer Rene Mesman does some rather interesting things with food. Working with raw food, he aims to get us thinking about our relationship with food and what we eat. He admires the lighting techniques used in old paintings and likes to keep things visually basic, simple and graphic. With the help of talented food stylists, Claartje Lindhout and Hanna van den Bos, Mesman’s food combinations mirror the gastronomic experiments of Heston Blumenthal and Ferran Adrià. The mismatch apple-pear and pea-blackberries are simple yet striking. I’m sure I’m not the only one who did a double take on the fish-pineapple.
