I love the beautiful shots from photographer Line Klein in the latest (February) issue of Food and wine magazine.
Photo editor Sara Parks, (ex Martha Stewart alum) is an expert in searching and finding great new photo talent, and she discovered Danish Photographer Line Klein via Pinterest, of all places! "I followed a beautiful picture that someone had pinned to her site, and immediately hired her to work on the latest issue." Says Parks, "I have been finding lots of new talent lately on Pinterest and Instagram, but she's my favorite find, by far."
Parks, who's first job was in the style department at Martha Stewart Weddings, switched over to the photo side of things after she got her feet wet on a huge Larry Fink shoot and decided that's where she wanted to be.
Parks hired Klein to photograph Food and Wine's new Handbook section in the magazine. "I was drawn to the richness of her work. Her photo's are very clean, and pared down, but then they have great saturated colors which elevate them up."
Line Klein who is a Copenhagen-based photographer shoots lifestyle, portraits and food, including food dishes for NOMA lab. (NOMA being the 2 Michelin starred restaurant run by chef René Redzepi, which has also been cited as, you know, the best restaurant in the entire world, several times.)
"The shoot went really well," said Parks, "she nailed what we were looking for: delicious, warm-looking food. Line is very hands-on with props, as she styles most of her photo shoots back in Denmark by herself, so we loved that she bought that to the shoot."
The current issue of Food and Wine containing Line Klein's photographs is on newsstands now.
