At the age of 12, Katharine Pollak received her first camera from friends of her parents, who owned a photo studio. From that day on the New York photographer has had a camera with her at all times. In the beginning she captured landscapes and recorded life’s loveliest moments. Now she focuses on food.
In her food photography Katharine Pollak shows a strong passion for texture, colour and shape. She reveals the beauty of simple, natural ingredients and creates sensual, profound images that arouse the desire to immediately taste the dish she has just photographed.
Whether she is shooting an organic garden, a cantaloupe melon or spices in a test kitchen her work knows no compromise. She ransacks her studio for suitable props and spares no effort to create the images her viewers crave.
