This photo series by Harmen Meinsma shot in Amsterdam explores Tommy Walton’s flamboyant personality as an enfant terrible in the culinary scene. As a previous contestant for Masterchef USA, he has managed to build his way up from reality tv, into a multifaceted artist and cook. “Tommy Walton is a renowned multifaceted, interdisciplinary designer & teacher, who blends the genres of fashion design, object design, culinary arts and performance,” said Meinsma. His vivid personality and bright white smile is contagious through these images that capture a personality, much more than a physical being. The photo series is undoubtedly connected to his love of culinary arts, “surrounded by delightful ingredients from sugary sweet to raw bloody meat Tommy himself is shining like a gastronomic delight.” Dressed in colours resembling acid-toned food colouring, Tommy embodies culinary camp, even if that isn’t a real thing.
