Photos logoPhotos 3 days ago

When a chef decides to merge photography with culinary skills, the results can be rather unusual. Photographer Robert Harrison and chef Robbie Postma have come up with a new photo series, titled “Menu”. Postma, the chef for the cafeteria at the Dutch advertising agency J. Walter Thompson Amsterdam, posed with raw ingredients from his recipes upon his face. Here is a look at this unique combination of food and photography.
