I Like Food Better Than People by Marzia Gamba
The series “I like food better than people” is an ode to my love for photography and food. It’s a minimal study of shapes, colors and light based on a personal aesthetic.
By controlling the image through composition and lighting I intend to transform the ordinary into an extraordinary expression of my inspiration and subsconscious.
I focus on the relation between food and human beings, challenging the view that food is purely of nutritional value bringing it onto an artistic platform. I want to show you how an image of a tangerine can be pleasing simply for its aesthetic expressivity.
Marzia Gamba has an upcoming exhibition opening on Friday January 26th from 7/10 p.m. at SoAM studio, Brooklyn, NY.
