Perfectly Balanced Ingredients

Ania Wawrzkowicz's photography elevates everyday ingredients into high art.

There are many parallels in how a still life photographer and a great chef approach food. Both are searching for new ways to bring out the best in the food they present. It could be a commonplace ingredient perfectly prepared and delivered with a simplicity that allows us to see it afresh, or combining ingredients in unexpected ways using techniques and methods that create delight.

At ico we're keenly aware of the importance of photography and its ability to transform the simplest subject matter into a compelling visual story. In her photographs, Ania Wawrzkowicz juxtaposes objects in unexpected ways. Working with stylist Aliki Kirmitsi, she creates images that are visually intricate and technically dazzling. Her photography plays with scale, materials and colour to elevate the everyday to high art.
