Xavier Soquet's dirty water photography finds beauty where most would find only dirty dishes and food remnants. This photographic series looks artistically at sudsy dish water and hardened fat. While the subject matter of these landscape-like images is not as appetizing as most other food-related photography, most would never know they were looking at old animal fat unless told.

The deceptive captures could easily be glacier water bodies in the arctic, a shot of the galactic sky or the surface of an unknown planet. The subject matter could easily be normal soap suds, food remnants or oily films instead of lumps of white fat. Even though the dirty water photography might err on the deceptive side, they are definitely interesting to look at.
