When things are organized neatly, it feels like the world is in order—if only just for a moment. Brittany Wright of Wright Kitchen regularly dazzles us with her array of rainbow foods that are arranged in eye-pleasing compositions and evoke a feeling of tranquility from deep within. From sugary candies to healthy fruits and veggies, Wright highlights the incredible visual diversity of the foods we eat.
The arrangements are relatively simple but meticulous in their assemblage and attention to detail. Set against a solid-colored background, Wright elects to have the “effortless beauty” of the ingredients shine. A citrus fruit, for instance, is cut open to reveal its vibrant flesh. Placed with similar objects, it creates a repeat pattern that, aside from making us hungry, encourages us to appreciate just how special this grocery store staple is. On a greater level, it reminds us that we should regularly try to find joy in the little things.
After years of playing with food, Wright has written a book with more than 100 photographs. Aptly called Feast Your Eyes, it’s now available for order on Amazon.
