Perfectly Imperfect


Discover the newest trend in food photography: Playing with the charm of imperfection. “Perfectly Imperfect” characterizes food images that strike the viewer as spontaneous and unstaged. Instead of luxury kitchen accessories, the props arouse associations with student life and consist of everyday objects found in every kitchen.
