Raw chicken that’s oddly appetising from food photographer Silvio Knezevic

Maybe it’s the time of year, the constant anticipation of stuffing our faces with all manner of enticing edibles, but we can’t get enough of the luxurious foodie photographs of German photographer Silvio Knezevic. It’s difficult to pinpoint exactly what it is about them that appeals so much – aside from their skilful execution – as their content is so varied. All at once you’re wilfully lusting over the flawless marbling in an angular piece of sirloin and the rich golden hue of a generous potato wedge before being slapped back down to earth by two spread-eagled chickens, all pallid skin and dormant salmonella. Silvio doesn’t simply deal with the polished money-shots of pristine plates that we’ve come to expect in high-end cookbooks; his imagery is more complex than that – after all it takes a lot of skill to make two flaccid birds look even remotely appealing – and for that we must applaud him!
