Brian Ferry: still life style

Monday, 24 September 2012

Brooklyn-based photographer Brian Ferry's new still life series Ennui explores the qualities of food that make it such an appealing prop.

Uninspired by food photography which over-stylises and makes the subject appear festishised, Ferry instead uses a laidback, snapshot approach to hone in on the texture, colour and shape of the food.

The simple styling is striking, and most importantly the food looks just the same as the food most people have on their tables.
