Pencil Alphabet

The whole alphabet carved out from pencils by Dalton Ghetti. It's a mini sculpture, making beautiful sweet things from the ordinary.

Food photography

Some recent photos as part of my experiment with food photography.

The first two are chinese spinach dipped in passionfruit, lit from behind and above in front of black cardboard. I think I took about 50 photos trying to get the right drip. The passionfruit kept sliding down too quicky!

The other other two are prawn heads. I really wanted to capture the translucency of the prawn heads (de-gutted par moi) and lit them from underneath a clear-topped table. I still have blue food coluoring on my fingers 3 days later.

Romain Laurent

The images of Romain Laurent's Tilt series is such a great but beautifully executed idea. It has that wonderful NY summer beginning-of-summer feeling.

The distortion of reality makes you realise how far photography has evolved and how deceptive it can be.
