I’ve been pondering how I could add a note of artistry to this series of photographs by Xavier Soquet. If I told you they were landscapes taken from the window of a helicopter as it flew over isolated parts of the world, you might believe me. Likewise, if they were close up images of never before seen parts of the milky way, or the surface of planet Neptune, or melting glaciers in the antarctic.
I won’t lie to you, though; this is fat. Hardened fat. The kind you leave next to your sink for days because washing up that baking tray is such a horrid job and you’re hoping one of your housemates will eventually just do it. These photographs may not be in the same kettle of fish as a Constable or a Rembrandt, but they are cool, aren’t they? Thank Xavier for this weird project, and his ability to see beauty where others might only see squalor and a potentially dangerous diet.
