I've become a foodie

“Don’t marry someone who doesn’t love food, they won’t understand the pleasures of life”
Cit. my grandma

I love good food.
Let me say that again: I love good food.
I really believe that a great meal is an absolute pleasure, as much as sex.
That’s why restaurant photography and food related events are a big part of my portfolio.
Going to restaurants as a photographer, I noticed that I was getting to know new people, and that I had the chance to taste new things and new flavours, from all over the world. Quite easy in a cosmopolitan city like Copenhagen.
But food is not just about food. 
We often forget that the food culture is such a big part of our daily life: without food we can’t survive, and we’ve managed to make it a true pleasure. Not only that: food involves traditions, habits, values; it can be a symbol of social status and religious belief, and it can tell a lot about a community.
It’s so interesting that I’m getting hungry again.

Oh, by the way, I had the best ramen soup ever last weekend, you can check it out here.

Smile Viking, smile

Today I was having coffee in a cosy cafe in the middle of Copenhagen with a good friend of mine, talking about photography, when she suggested to start a blog, so that people could stay updated with my work.
I thought about it for a minute and decided to give it a shot.
So I wanna start by posting a portrait I took of her that I really love: and if you knew how difficult it is to make a tough viking-ish Norwegian smile, you'd love it too.
