“The F word” presented by Angela Marklew
The featured collection is an extract from Angela Marklew book, titled the f word. This frame of work was created to remind people that food is not something to be taken very seriously, it can be fun and it should be.
I am a firm believer in playing with your food – A. Marklew
Food in these photographs has been used in a novel and very innovative way. Some pictures show the fun side of food, in some there is irony but every single picture captures the beauty of food in an inventive way.
Every portrait paints an original and fresh idea. Angela Marklew looks at food as an accessory in some of these and has nailed the idea beautifully.
Angela Marklew is a Canadian scientist who took a 360 degree turn and opted for photography. Angela now lives in Venice Beach, California after deciding that Canada’s cold was too much for her to take and got fed up of testing explosives for the government.
Angela’s obsessions for capturing on her film are road trips and choices of individuals for dinner! She is willing to go to any extents when she has an image to capture and is frequently seen mounting broken ladders, jumping fences and splashing in swamps to grasp creative quests. She shoots fashion/beauty and editorial portraiture.
It wasn’t until Angela’s first assistance for Mark Robert Halper, L.A’s famous portrait photographer that she realized that she could initiate with photographing people. So she started exploring this part of her new field and was quite intrigued to find that inside studio shoots gives her every command on the slightest article, she focused on planning and achieved what she had in her mind. This practice was in total contrast to what went on at outside-the-studio-photo shoot where she was merely at the mercy of people and things she stumbled upon.
Her work has also been featured in We The Urban magazine, Etoilee magazine, PDN, Digital Photo Pro, Press the Fashion magazine, W25, Photo Life, and Photo Ed magazines. Via behance
