White on white.  Ever since I’ve been excited by making photographs, I’ve been intrigued by the tones on either end of the brightness scale; the brightest whites and the darkest backs before those tones slip off the scale and leave the rest up to your imagination of what’s there.

When I first became aware of the vivid colors and compositions that Chef Sarah Pliner deploys at Aviary, I was inspired to shoot them on the brightest white I could make, to really let the food pop.  I love that the only colors that you see are what’s in Sarah’s beautiful dishes.
