Drawings and Photographs: The DishesLai Yu Tong
“The dishes in the apartment I share with my partner is one of my biggest sources of inspiration. I realised one day that it also made for good still life compositions. So I decided to photograph the dishes each time before washing them and to continue this for about a month. I later making drawings of them. I hadn't drawn in a long time and it felt good.
After laying out the zine, me and Renée then tried to recall from the images what we had eaten or drank from these dishes. It turns out that we were eating a lot of bread with spread and I mostly drank a lot of milk.”
