I started this 5 pieces series two years ago. As travel was quite difficult, I made my own gastronomic tour. I created willingly happy and colorful compositions playing, with humor I hope, with a few very common clichés (like all French people go with a baguette under the arm) we generally have of what traditional food is in other regions. In that precise case, I chose breakfasts from a few nearby countries. These few neighboring countries I wasn’t able to travel to, I visited for just one morning without traveling thanks to the “Travel Restrictions Breakfasts” project.
In Summer 2021, I submitted a first piece of my Creative Food Photography to The Siena International Photography Awards: It received the “Most Commanded“ mention in the Food and Beverages Category.
The “Travel Restrictions Breakfast” series was a finalist for the 2022 Sony World Photography Award in the Still-Life Category.
Céline is a French photographer based in Barcelona.
She’s been a photographer for a long time (long, but best not say how long).
Her body of work is primarily Street Photography and Documentary.
She is covering trade shows and events upon commission.
Yes, you read through the lines, her thing was “candid” and un-staged photography, until…She started to create colorful compositions with food.
Adopting different lenses, composing, controlling the frame and the products, lights, and reflectors…She enjoys the fine balance that provides her switching regularly from Street Photography, in a candid mode, to a highly staged Food Photography set.
She feels free to be a little crazy and plays happily with food (Don’t tell her parents, they taught her otherwise.)
