I believe that in every tasty treat, there are some special atoms hidden. That is why I came up with such a project with a combination of nuclear physics and food photography. I think this series can motivate people to expand their knowledge of science, and it will also be interesting for all sweets lovers!

Oleksandra Mykhailutsa, a still-life photographer from Odesa, Ukraine, is renowned for her creative compositions capturing everyday objects' beauty. Her interest in photography blossomed in her youth, exploring nature's magnificence. Using flowers and food, she crafts captivating scenes. Her use of color and dynamics creates unique, attention-grabbing photos. Levitation scenes defy physics, showcasing her composition and retouching skills. Despite being a family doctor, she's also a mother of two sons, with whom she managed to be refugees in the first years of the war in the country.
