The Food Collages of Julie Lee
There's a quiet, rhythmic beauty to the food collages of Julie Lee, a California-based photographer who shoots meticulously arranged patterns of fruits, vegetables, flowers, and greenery, most of it from a Santa Monica farmers' market and her own urban garden. Lee has an uncanny knack for visual harmonics. In one image, pomegranate seeds, baby romaine lettuce leaves, and wispy pea shoots seem to drift through the air like confetti; in another, gleaming heirloom tomatoes, dainty parsley stems, and vibrant salad greens seem electrified when placed against a simple white backdrop. We often find ourselves staring at these tempting collages at julieskitchen.me, dreaming of all the beautiful dishes we'd make from her composed cornucopias.
