Balance. It’s critical to how we live our lives, and especially important when it comes to our diets. Elena Mora, an Italian stylist, takes the idea of a balanced diet and turns it into an artistic expression.
Styled by Mora and photographed by Karsten Wegener, what you see above and below are the ingredients to recipes, such as the image at top, which is everything you’d need to make pizza margherita. Below you’ll find photos for apple cake, minestrone soup, and a well dressed piece of salmon. Even though most moms tell you not to play with your food I’m certainly glad that Elena didn’t listen. These pieces are perfectly set-up, well lit, and most of all, fun. Her style reminds me a bit of Carl Kleiner and the way he sets up food, but I think that puts her in good company.
