This talented photographer brings out the beauty in everyday foods with her crazy-colorful pictures.
Seattle-based photographer Brittany Wright loves food. It’s the centerpiece to her creative and strangely satisfying portraits that have attracted a big following.
These photos are in a series that Wright calls “Food Gradients,” and features mainly fruits and vegetables lined up in a visually appealing way.
There’s something strangely mesmerizing and satisfying about how perfectly spaced and sorted the foods are in each photo.
Wright says that her work has inspired and touched many in ways she never expected.”People have reached out to explain how my art has helped them,” she told Distractify. “Anything from mothers telling me I’ve inspired them to feed their family better to individuals with OCD using my art to look at and remove their nervous ticks.”
“I am constantly finding the beauty in colors and shapes that naturally occur in fruits and vegetables,” Wright said. “The food gradients project is my way of celebrating both of these.
Most of the foods used for her photos are purchased from local farmers markets and are then used in cooking projects of her own.
“A majority of it goes from the photo and then into the dishes I create,” she explained. “Cooking is a large part of my daily routine and something I’m very passionate about within my food journey.”
Still, there’s usually plenty of leftovers to share.
“To my friends I’ve become the queen of bulk food and am thankful that they have no problem letting me load them up with what I can’t get to,” she said. “In the few rare times that I can’t find whatever it is a home, I will take it down to a local food bank in my neighborhood.”
Wright creates beautiful art that helps others, both physically and mentally. What can be better than that?
