    Wesley Dombrecht

The idea behind the series ‘Sprouting & rotting’ was to capture ingredients that are in the state of sprouting or dissolution,there original form wil rot away & wil make place for new life, roots or seeds. By the use of very simply composition and lighting,whit lots of dark umber tones, i wanted the likeness of an old painting , whit a surreal twist.

Wesley Dombrecht(1979) is a Belgium-based commercial and artistic food photographer,He first started with commercial food photography, after a few years he also took the leap towards the artistic side of food photography. In his personal work he is looking at food in a different way, trying to capture it more aesthetic,he developed a signature style that you can describe as conceptual, painterly, timeless images with floating objects that sometimes have a somewhat surreal feeling.
