Vanessa Rees’ photography dares to get a little messy. The Brooklyn-based artist embraces imperfection, with shots featuring scattered, disheveled food, often mid-preparation. Rees’s collection captures the clutter that food preparation causes in order to create that one perfect dish.
By embracing flaws, Reese sets her photo collection apart from the picture-perfect food editorials that we’re so used to seeing. Instead, Reese injects a sense of play into each photos, which epitomizes the behind-the-scenes pleasure and enjoyment of creating a dish. Rather than staying static, Rees captures a dynamic journey of creation.
Rees’s photographs are stunning, colorful compositions that will satisfy the visual cravings of any foodie. Unfortunately, I can’t say the same about your hunger cravings, but even without satiating your appetite, it’s worth a look.
