De Broodbouwers - Where Beer & Bread Connect People @debroodbrouwers
Such an honor to be part of this incredible project here in Den Haag.
The social mission of De Broodbrouwers is to help more than 60 people with an occupational disability with a paid job in both their bistro and bakery. This group of people is often unable to find a job independently, let alone keep a job. This organization has over 5 years of experience in successfully guiding and deploying this target group.
This hybrid image was created for a new unsweetened vodka-based beverage "SPLASH", a project with Sapporo of Japan.
Both a large splash tank and a small bubble tank were used. Great fun was had using high-speed Broncolor flash units and Phase One medium format camera equipment. The concept required quite a variety of flavor options that featured large, heavy fruits like grapefruit down to tiny, light ones like berries. Problem-solving required a master splash to be created to make the "sizzle" and preserve continuity in the packaging design. The flavor cues were shot separately to maximize the luscious textures and freshness of the fruits. Pre-light and test 1/2 day, shoot done in one day with a little high-speed video too.
This shot was taken as part of a series of shots for a butcher's shop near my hometown. They wanted to emphasise the tools used for traditional butchery including the butchers steel and the block on which the meat rests. The meat of course is the real star. I was very happy with how the images turned out as it was shot on location in a very, very cold refrigeration unit with stone floors and little comfort!
I love the graphic simplicity of this shot and the muted colour palette that keeps the attention on the hero.
I'm particularly happy with the amount of texture that I managed to capture when lighting a humble, flat soup dish!

Multiple scanned data combined with multiple Leica digital data of a Bok choy or also known as the Chinese cabbage. This variety does not form heads but rather have green leaf blades with lighter bulbous bottoms instead, forming a cluster reminiscent of mustard greens. The taste of this cabbage is very mellow, with its own unique mild, peppery spice.
There is a combination of over 30 single images.
Unique Traditional teowchew dish "Pao Fan". "Pao" means "to submerge" and "fan" refers to the rice in mandarin. The key difference between porridge and "Pao fan" is that porridge are rice grains simmered in a liquid until a soft, watery consistency is achieved but for "Pao fan", the rice grains are steamed as per the usual rice you eat, then drenched in piping hot Roth when served.
