Greg Stroube worked in a limited color palette for this series, focusing on black, white, and blue image color tone. In a culinary context, this color space is unusual – you’ll find unlikely ingredients like squid ink pasta, purple sweet potatoes, and waxy honeycomb.
The work was a team effort – food stylists, props, partners, producers. He and her team dug through inspiration, pulled together materials, switched this out for that, baked up a new tart with a different fruit to see which looked prettier. The collaboration is essential to composing the shot; it’s the real fun of the work.
