Sweet Raspberry Donuts by Keshia Sophia

As a child I loved nothing more than a warm, jam donut from our local bakery. What I remember most is the warm, fluffy texture of the fresh dough mixed with the sweet explosion of raspberry jam. The magic is in the filling which is what I wanted to capture in this photograph. What stood out for me was the combination of textures in the donuts, so I used natural light and a shallow focus to highlight this.

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.
