The magical miniature world of Akiko Lda and Pierre Javelle.
Notes about the artists (from bios):
Since childhood, Akiko has always been attracted to the world of gastronomy. As a child, she elaborated and baked different sorts of bread which she subsequently photographed and classified in a notebook. At the same time, she invented tiny characters that filled entire pages of her journal. Akiko became a renowned Food Photographer. She took part in more than 30 cookbooks, and her work is published in international magazines.
Pierre hails from Burgundy. He grew up on a comics died. Attracted by drawing, illustrations and photography, art school was his refuge. The likes of Doisneau and Cartier-Bresson were major influences in his choice of photography as a medium. His admiration of the work of Duane Michals or Francesca Woodman and their very personal visual worlds participated in the elaboration of Pierre’s style. Pierre’s pictures are published in major gourmet magazines, and his still-life photographs appear in corporate commercials.
