I have planned the #28th photoshoot for 8 months, so I couldn’t believe it when my idea, which at first seemed like a “mission impossible”, has been finally fulfilled. This #28th time lifted me up to the sky both figuratively and literally. I walked on the roofs and took pictures of food in such a place where the entire Vilnius Old Town below fitted in the palm of my hand.
Don’t think that this is just the photography. This project of mine is as fascinating as it is because it forces me out of my box every day and into various spheres of life. Every detail of this photoshoot with Javier Lopez, the chef of restaurant “Telegrafas” on a roof top at the Kempinski Hotel Cathedral Square was planned and managed by me. It was challenging. I had to take care of everything from the location and table décor, models and clothes, to technical solutions on how to turn on the light bulbs. Not to mention all the organisational matters… But it was worth all the effort. When I got on the roof with an amazing view of all the roofs of our Capital, when the evening dusk took over the warm, sunny, summer day and the city lights turned on, then I realized that my project “52 times” allows me to dive into deeper waters rather than just photography, and set the bar higher each time.
So, this time I present to you the magical and romantic #28th photoshoot on a roof top and wonderful restaurant dishes, which recipes were adapted to make at home by Javier. Take a pleasant look and afterwards don’t forget to indulge your taste buds.
