An archetype is a classical representation of an idea deeply embedded within a culture. By photographically exploring archetypes of food, particularly those that embody the fundamental characteristics of substance from the natural world, I create relationships of similarity and differences.
“Life from Light” examines the forms of food that possess a primordial kind of reality connecting with the land and mankind. Through photography, I am investigating collective ideas about food; in this process, the understanding and identity of these foods gets deconstructed and abstracted. Food becomes the substance that carries singular and plural representations of itself, and defines all living beings.
