Creative Food Photography by Kevin Van Aelst

Kevin Van Aelst is one of the New York Times Magazine's most original contributing photographers. Inspired by artists such as Tom Friedman and Andy Goldsworthy, and after years of discovering moments of beauty to capture photographically, Van Aelst realized he was after a new challenge and the opportunity to experiment with a new technique, to show irony through art.

"My color photographs consist of common artifacts and scenes from everyday life, which have been rearranged, assembled, and constructed into various forms, patterns, and illustrations. The images aim to examine the distance between the ‘big picture’ and the ‘little things’ in life—the banalities of our daily lives, and the sublime notions of identity and existence."
