Market Day by Keshia Sophia

The west of Ireland is known for its fresh seafood. Salmon is my absolute favourite catch of the day, if anything for the colour. We love cooking with fresh fish in our home but there is something to be said for appreciating the beauty of a food in its raw form. With Salmon, the simplest ingredients work best and I wanted to capture this sentiment in the photography. I chose to use a natural light that would gently skim across the surface of the fillet to better showcase its freshness. The addition of a little dill and salt better accentuated the clean texture of the fish.

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.
