Hyperreal, Minimalist Food Photography by Bobby Doherty

Bobby Doherty

Brooklyn-based Photographer Bobby Doherty makes powerfully stylized images out of ordinary, familiar objects. His distinctive approach to photography creates images that are almost hyperreal: photos that look like paintings of photos. This makes sense as his studio photography work involves some level of digital manipulation and a tendency toward turning objects into patterns and textures through arrangement and composition.

There’s a wonderful graphic sensibility throughout these images that is rooted in bright, flat colors and an emphasis on the material, tactile quality of their subjects. Even his more casual-looking shots have a restrained and detached sense about them. He manages to make a pile of garbage look as engaging as an arrangement of donuts. I love the way his images bring beauty to the mundane. Check out more of his work here.
