I’ll be the first to admit that I am a little obsessive compulsive. I like plans written in nice lists, color coded on specific paper; I prefer to fill my gas tank to an even number; and I like to sort the beverages in my fridge by color and height. And I tend to freak out a bit if things aren’t quite that way. That’s why this fantastic series of images titled, “Food Gradients,” by foodie and photographer Brittany Wright caught my eye and fed my organization-loving soul.
Brittany, a Seattle-based photographer, has made it a life goal to teach herself to “cook everything and anything.” Using simple, real foods and arranging them by color and size, Brittany has created a beautiful array of gradient compositions that would please any palette. In the Wright Kitchen, a rainbow of colorful foods stand out against a plain (usually white) backdrop, lined up artfully in vibrant rows and columns.
If you’ve ever attempted food photography, you’ll know that it’s not as easy as it looks. Food photography, even for fresh fruits and veggies takes time and meticulous attention to detail. Each of these images takes quite a bit of scouring markets for the right color and ripeness to create the perfect gradient of color.
Brittany posts her images on her Instagram account which has amassed a following of over 81k food lovers looking for their fresh fruit and veggie eye candy each day. Next month, Brittany plans on taking a road trip to a list of cities and visiting various farms in the hopes of educating people about where our food comes from. She’ll be documenting her trip along the way, which I am sure will be artfully and neatly arranged. For someone who thrives on order and organization, it’s a dream come true. So be sure to follow her Instagram account here and her website for more delicious food art.
