When people find out I'm a food stylist, the first question they always ask me is about how I fake it. They want to know all about the secret tricks I use to make everything "just so", and I think they're a little disappointed when they find out that there really aren't any. Sure, I carry fake rubber ice in my kit (not only does it float; it bounces!), but aside from that the food I prepare for photo and video shoots is not very different from the food I make at home, and at the end of the day pretty much all of it gets eaten.
Photographer Miachel Breton and I built a large kaleidoscope in which we could explore the geometric patterns created by the repetition of every day objects. We channeled our efforts into four images riffing on the seasons. The spaces feel both abundant and sparse, reminiscent of landscapes familiar and alien. Only the bottom third of each photo depicts real space; the rest is comprised of compounding reflections.
