Traveling from coast to coast on an American road trip, Swiss photographer Steven Shaher documents his meals and the women who serve them in a series of subtly captivating pictures.
While many people have come across dogs who look like their owners, the same comparison would not likely be well received if it was made between a server and a plate of food. Nonetheless, the arrangement, color palette and mood of the entrees seems to resonate with the personality of the waitresses.
The food embodies the satisfaction of a wholesome meal after hours on the road while the pictures of the servers capture the individual persona of those whose lives are marked by hard work, resilience and wholesome personalities. The pairing of the two makes for an interesting metaphor for life on the road.
