Henry Hargreaves

We just had to share some of the work of this talented food photographer. The model turned photographer grew up in Christchurch, New Zealand and has a unique way of looking at the world of food. Among his many projects he’s depicted countries and continents using iconic regional foods and photographed the last meal prisoners on death row.

We swiped to questions from his website that explain his process, head over there to see more of his stuff.

You seem to be “affected” by the cardinal sin of childhood: playing with food. Why do you have developed such a mouth watering artistic obsession?
I always worked in the food industry before being able to be a full time photographer. I was fascinated about peoples requests and what they ordered said about their character and personality. I try to bring this idea into my work by showing the connections visually.

Say something about your process, how do you go about creating your work?
It’s very simple, I create visuals that appeal to me. Ideas can come from anyplace and usually if it makes me laugh or keeps coming back to my mind without writing it down I feel I should try to make it. Once I decide to execute something the only hurdle is my own motivation.
