The blue and blueberries pairing is obvious, but we wanted to make a beautiful shot, so we pulled in the branches and made it look more like a painting than a photograph.
The beef and broccoli with the mountains and the cows is more tongue-in-cheek. We wanted strong, different images but still have the ability to place them next to each other without them feeling like complete strangers.
What are some of your favorite foods to work with and why?
Jello, it has so many forms it can take, it connects with my nostalgia for my youth and it always puts a smile on people’s faces.
Are you drawn to collaborations?
Yes, I am. I just like working with other people, because then I feel like you get results you don’t usually find if you work by yourself. You can work on each other’s strengths and help alleviate each other’s weaknesses.
What’s inspiring you right now?
Being in New York and being surrounded by a whole lot of people, constant stimulation and trying to keep myself open-minded and not stuck in any ruts.
What are your on-the-road essentials?
I always take my computer, my phone and an app that shows me where coffee shops are. I collect coffee cups, so wherever I go I try to find really cool coffee shops.
