Award Winner | Photo of the Day | October 27, 2011
Food is a huge part of my life, my parents and grand-parents were amazing cooks and my dad worked as a food critic once in the 70′s. So it was just a matter of time before I got into the Food genre and started working with restaurants and hotels. This shot was part of a series I was working on with Asian foods. I tried to bring out the tiny texture of the salmon and rice which no one usually notices when they’re eating.
