Food Photography Looks More Like Surreal Performance Art

Australian still life stylist Sonia Rentsch has created mealtime masterpieces that capture the motions surrounding food.

Melbourne-based artist and still life stylist Sonia Rentsch has turned her talent of staging compelling still life scenes towards food for Australian food magazine Rare Medium. The resulting series is dynamic and surreal, capturing movements that occur around mealtime, yet simplifying the scenes to include just the hands that take part in the preparing and serving. Plates are presented from these gloved and bodiless hands while condiments descend on the appropriate meal in graceful arcs. Rentsch collaborated with photographer John Laurie and Australian ad agency Mash.
