Life Gives You Lemons

When Life Gives you Lemons_Humans and Food-6.jpg

It’s a saying we’re told from a young age: when life gives you lemons, make lemonade. It’s a way to think about one thing—positive or negative—and turn it into something entirely different. That’s how I see photography, specifically culinary photography. Presented with a dish, I aim to use photos to evoke a feeling that’s entirely new, possibly separate from what the viewer might have originally thought. In this set of photos, a lemon isn’t just a fruit. Instead, it is an opportunity to create, to grow, to learn.
