This project began when I was looking for an image of Uni and thinking "why are there no good photos of uni? Or Sea Urchin?" etc. So I decided I needed to make some! I really wanted it to be clean and simple to show off the brilliant colors (or lack of colors) and amazing textures of the food. I chose the black to not have any background to distract away from the hero and opted for plexi to capture some reflections when I thought it would enhance the shot. I went to the different Chinese, Japanese, and Korean markets throughout NYC and was so inspired. I will absolutely continue this project over time, as there are so many wondrous ingredients in Asian cooking.
