Photography - Stephen Hamilton, Food Stylist - Lynn Gagne, Prop Stylist - Lindsey Parker, Story & Design - Judith Mara
Food stylist, Lynn Gagne, was doing such a beautiful job decorating doughnuts for a client that she and Steve conspired to do a day of shooting nothing but doughnuts worthy of framing. This is what happened.
Art starts with inspiration. Even when that artwork is something as plain as a doughnut. After all, doughnuts are simply fried dough. Add sugar and you have delicious.
Add chocolate, pearlized nonpareils, rose petals, candied oranges and vanilla bean and you have elegant little sculptures.
Add a silky glaze and you create art that moves you ...
... or just makes you hungry.
There are a few renown artists that have used doughnuts as a subject. Andy Warhol created a famous pop-art painting. Korean born artist, Jae Yong Kim is known for his ceramic beauties. But ...
... only through photography can you conserve and preserve the real thing. The most important reason is this magical, edible artwork seems to disappear even before a shoot is over.
