Victoria Firmston

United Kingdom

British photographer Victoria Firmston is a picture agency’s dream come true. Time and again, she fills a gap in the collection with a truly classic shot. A new trend in baking, perhaps. A bunch of emerald samphire on a driftwood plank. Damsons tumbling from a pail. Sunflowers or flowering chives. Her own best stylist, she has a fantastic understanding of ingredients, in every sense of the word.

The elements of an effective shot - composition, background and lighting – are as important as its subject matter. But her true focus is on the edible ingredients of a timeless food image: a field of waving wheat, a translucent slice of radish on a silver knife, or a close-up of cardamom showing the fine contrast of textures in seeds and pods.
There’s nothing gimmicky about photographs like these – Firmston is simply an expert at capturing the essence of a subject.
