Artist's Statement:

I work at night and my employer provides a meal; a benefit in kind that clearly appears in the right place on my payslip. I decided to keep a trace of this benefit in kind put on my plate. That’s how I started making this photographic journal with my mobile phone: unpretentious pictures snapped quickly in the same technical conditions. The daily specials look healthy, but I have a problem with them. In this age of hyped-up gastronomy, when a flawed dinner is poorly rated, some food is utterly forgettable. #junkfood #foodindustry #massproduction #lowcost
