The Art of Sushi by Keshia Sophia

This photograph was an exercise in texture. However I couldn’t resist adding a little action. Sushi is a dish best served shared and I wanted to capture that pleasure. There is something so elegant and delicate about using chopsticks. It really is an art form. But the same can be said about making sushi. Combining both movements allows for a more fuller image of the sushi eating experience. The complexity is in the dish itself which means keeping the background and props to an absolute minimum.

Keshia is a food photographer and copywriter based in Galway. With a background in film, literature and creative writing, Keshia is a lover of stories in all their forms. Immersed in a culture of film and food from a young age has translated into a keen eye for cinematography with a love affair for authentic cuisine. She believes that every dish and product is unique. Her aim as a photographer is to provide the best setting for each individual creation to be heard authentically.

Keshia’s photographic style extends beyond simple texture and lighting. She strives to capture the story behind the dish. Her goal with food photography is always to create an emotional connection. For Keshia, food is not just ingredients combined. Food represents memories, heritage, culture and love. It is perhaps one of the more authentic forms of creative expression. This sensibility has shaped her style into one marked by intimacy. A desire to get up close and personal with each dish, and showcase its beauty from the eyes of the creator as opposed to merely the eyes of the beholder.

Ultimately her work aims to turn every dish into a language accessible to many but reflective of you.
