Jason B James photographs food and beverages for editorial, advertising, and fine art projects. His photographs are colorful and emphasize the contrast and play between light and shadow. After years of working directly towards commercial and editorial goals, Jason has recently stepped back to reexamine his work in the scope of fine art and paying attention to the process as much as the outcome.
Food is a catalyst for memories. Jason’s goal with every shoot is to make a connection with his audience through shared food experiences. Sometimes these memories can be literal, and occasionally they play with the idea of what is and what could be in the eye of the eater.
BEFOREAFTER is an examination of both the traditional editorial food styling, as well as the proposal of what becomes after we experience the party of eating, be it alone or with others.
