Illustrative photography for the book "Kitchen" by Julia Vysotskaya


More than 200 photos were gathered under the main topic of “Food”. Slava carried out the illustrative photography project for the book “Kitchen” by Julia Vysotskaya in Netherlands where he spent almost the whole summer.

Why Netherlands? As to Slava, there is a unique natural light. In Netherlands it every time falls in a special way. Thus a photographer has an opportunity for limitless experiments.

There were two main locations: Noordwijk and Haarlem. These northern region influenced the sophisticated atmosphere of the photos. The arrangement looks very balanced and thorough. This result was also affected by the props. It took Slava more than a month to find  and finally choose them with all his detailed approach. Some pieces of conventional ware were brought from the central part of Russia. Other accessories  were carefully chosen in European shops. In the book you can see a lot of items that were made by Slava or refined by him. Such as colored by hand towels , weathered chopping boards and other kitchenware.

Every photo in the book “Kitchen” taken by Slava Pozdnyakov is a small journey through the whole spectrum of taste and colour that the food can give us.
