‘Cholesterol’s Revenge’ by Irving Penn in Vogue, 1994. I remember clearly the first time I saw this as I flipped through my new Vogue - such a strong still life, so deliciously wrong. I instantly teared it out as inspiration for how food still life should be - tactile, striking, art.
Bas Meeuws (1974) is a passionate photographer who has given a new twist to the traditional Dutch still life with flowers. Meeuws does not paint his flowers with a brush and oil paints, as his famous predecessors from the 17th century did. His images come from a digital reflex camera.
