Food photographer Yasmin Albatoul combines natural imagery with elements of the surreal to transform everyday kitchen scenes into works of art. Often depicting food being prepared or poured, or even floating in mid-air, her images have a lightness which belies the painstaking effort that goes into every detail.
Since completing a professional photography diploma in 2017 – and encouraged by her growing following on Instagram – Yasmin has turned what was a hobby into a successful career, winning awards and collaborating with global brands. She currently works from her own studio – the kitchen of her home in Batna, Algeria. Here, she explains the work that goes into creating her incredible images and provides an insider's account of how to find success in such a competitive industry.
