Food photography usually consists of photos of cooked dishes, but this particular series -- put together by Nora Luther and Pavel Becker -- consists of recipe photography, capturing raw ingredients rather than completed dishes or meals. The photographs depict raw ingredients seemingly floating in mid-air, and leave the appearance of the completed dish to the viewer's imagination.
What's interesting about this recipe photography series is that it's a lot more like actual cooking than you might think. Anybody who genuinely enjoys cooking knows that sticking to precise recipes is something only beginners do, and that a lot of the best culinary creations are the result of improvisation, experience and finesse.
Luther says the photos "serve a foretaste not only of the dish but also of its preparation". This approach ensures that the appearance of the completed dish is left to the viewer's imagination.
