This was a personal project playing and experimenting with items and on contrasting backgrounds. As a food photographer I believe it’s like creating an art-piece, like painting or anything else similar. You sit in the studio with all the colors and textures, and at the end you have to create something for a viewer that will be arouse hunger feelings in them, feelings of action to go get that sandwich and that’s what I enjoy doing, getting hands (and sometimes your camera) dirty and greasy make all the parts come together. For this shot, in the end I wanted to make a sandwich that I would want to eat myself, which I gladly did at the end of this shoot!
