When Agnes Gällhagen, now photographer and food artist, was a teen, she cooked as a way of relaxing from the pressures of studying and being a teenager. Somewhere along the way, the joy began to elude her and her struggle with eating disorders started.
When she decided many years later to start creating recipes again and to start writing food blogs, it was a way for her to reestablish her relationship with food. Instead of focusing on calories and nutritional value, she focused on nourishing the soul. Photographing food became an important part of her recovery. Through the lens, she was able to see the beauty of food and appreciate the ingredients in a whole new way.
As such, Agnes' relationship with her recipes and food photos is deeply personal. We at Johnér's are proud to have her food images and a number of others in our large collection.
