“Difficult? I am not difficult! I’m passionate, and I know what I want. I only want the Best!” – Paul Liebrandt
“I wanted to take Nouvelle Cuisine further, to the point where we were breaking down the Essence of Taste and Sensation, reconfiguring food as a series of really intense hits on the tongue.” – Ferran Adria
Shooting food is ultimately about simplicity and truth. Like Ferran’s molecular kitchen, Holger visually breaks down the Essence of a Dish into its smallest components. Surprisingly intimate. Extraordinarily sensual. His photographs allow the food to speak for itself. Flavor, aroma, color, texture are all part of the whole – a harmonious symphony for the senses.

“Food can be expressive and therefore food can be art.” – Grant Achatz
Great food photography begins with a vision. Vibrant colors, deliberate composition and accurate scale are the basic ingredients, creative and inspired lighting is the secret sauce. It’s all about timing, technique and rhythm. Building a dish is like a dance. Capturing the essence of it is the grand finale.
Holger has a life-long love affair with both art and food. Being an accomplished chef himself, he knows what it takes to create art. Sophisticated equipment leads to an inspired presentation. Artistic mindset leads to unexpected results. Large format cameras, vintage lenses and groundbreaking lighting techniques define Holger’s signature look.
The result: Stunning 3-Dimensional Photographs. Larger than life. Sublime. Bewildering. Sensual.
