Food stylist Johan

Food stylist and chef Johan van der Merwe and photographer Eugene Langan have worked together on many photographic food projects producing memorable images that have appeared on food packaging for food producers and retailers, advertising, food brochures and magazines.


The Bite Project came about in an effort to bridge two photographic forms - portrait and food photography. The renaissance in Irish food presented a large and diverse pallet for both food stylist and photographer.


The subjects of the photographs come from a wide spectrum of the food culture in Ireland - farmers, restaurateurs, behind the scene business people, stylists, urban gardeners, and writers.Each sitter was photographed with a food that relates to either food preference or to their role in the food culture.


The talent of make up artist Brian Ward and post production expert Emmet Langan is reflected with subtlety and skill in each of the portraits. The Bite Project can be seen at Taste of Dublin...
