The road from the idea to the final result of this new #27th time has been the longest of all. It straggled along the Liepų Street in Klaipėda to Gediminas and Konstitucijos avenues.
The idea of taking pictures of the food as a work of art on clothes, was a seed in my mind since the beginning of this project and I was wondering with which chef I could fulfil it. Then, in the spring I met with Vytautas Sumavičius. At first just to chat and discuss how he could accede to my project and how his food photo session could look. Vytautas was full of crazy ideas.
“We could take pictures in a railway station or take pictures of food at night in our Liepų Street while cars are passing by,” he shared his thoughts.
We couldn’t decide on anything specific at that time, however I left Klaipėda with the impression that something interesting and unusual could be done with this chef. It then suddenly all began taking shape in my head – the food, the street, the night, something unexpected and my idea to present the food with the focus on clothes.
This is the way the #27 was born, which linked my two passions – food and night photography. Vytautas’ dishes became the prints on T-shirts, one of which I wore myself in the night city. The others were worn by three other gourmets of great life – Monika Pundziūtė (Moniqué), Vytautas Rumšas Jr. and Aidas Puklevičius.
So, another new way of taking pictures of food is born – check!
