Macrophotographic series of egg shells compressed under glass plates. It comes from the series on the work "Culinary Compressions."

"I also use different methods to cook my food, here we find the technique of molecular cooking. I start from an everyday object and create an abstract and poetic image using a method that I have been using and refining for years.

The influence comes from the science and technology of macroscopic photography. As well as an influence from abstract painting. I am breaking with a traditional conception of culinary photography." - Night8Bird

Gaëtan Changeur alias Night8Bird was born in Paris in 1981. Photographer-Plastician, he followed his training at the EFET School of Photography, he is passionate about black and white photography and devotes himself to creative and intuitive work with the technique of the photogram.

His work in colour photography began in the 2000s with the theme "Culinary Compressions". From the infinitely large to the infinitely small. A photographic journey into abstraction and matter in a new form. With macro photography as the main tool.

Night8Bird uses living materials mainly fruit or vegetables that it slices very thinly to obtain transparency. Then, he very often compresses them between two large glass plates in order to deform them and remove them from their original shape. He often mixes other liquids and dyes.

Night8Bird explores the intimacy and beauty of simple subjects in her daily life. The idea is to get out of classical culinary photography and get a little closer to an abstract painting. He tries to remove some of the visual cues associated with them and focus only on their aesthetic and poetic character.

His photographs invite the viewer to an infinite, limitless journey between structure and destructure. Tamed by his gaze, the most banal of vegetables, becomes an abstract work of art.
