Holy Sfogline

I am a reminder of the full-length portrait of August Sander’s pastry cook, feet firmly on the ground, looking squarely into the camera, hands busy with the tools of his trade – a man in the fullness of his career and master of his profession.And then I see the half-length portraits of Tommaso Bonaventura’s pastry cooks in their typical white aprons and even more typical chef’s bonnets, their hands and working environment out of sight, eyes looking everywhere except into the camera. The figures stand out a black background, helping to emphasize the details and expressions on their faces which are highlighted by the photographer’s skill and power of his camera.
