About Rekfotos Photography by Edmund Rek
Growing up in a diplomatic family and living all over the world exposed me to many people, cultures and landscapes. At a very young age I learned to fit in by slowly observing my surroundings. I believe this is where the foundation of a becoming a photographer was formed. Later, working as a professional chef, in high demand kitchens, I built on to this foundation. I learned the importance and aesthetic of placing the food on the plate in a manner that was appealing. This was done over and over again and it became natural for the eye to seek harmony in space and form.
I feel most comfortable around food, but with a camera I can capture things around me in ways I never thought possible. The training for a chef is mostly watching, observing and finding order in chaos. Documenting with a camera can be a similar process and not so different in its reward.
