For the cover of the August issue of Clase Premier Magazine, Mexican studio Golpeavisa had to make a portrait of René Redzepi, the world’s best chef. Usually, these cover illustrations are digital drawings, but this time Golpeavisa decided to push their luck a little bit further, and do the illustration photographically.

The idea was to shoot a bunch of cuisine and kitchen related elements positioned in such a way that it would look like a silhouette of Redzepi’s face.

“It was a lot harder than we thought but it was a lot of fun. Yorch took charge of the lighting and photographical production while the rest of us sketched the composition and placed the elements in the shot.”
