From his studio in Kiev, Ukraine, Yaroslav Danylchenko creates bright and quirky visual narratives that revolve around tabletop, food and product photography. What was once a hobby eventually became a profession, and Danylchenko now shoots commercials, advertisements and editorials for various production and advertising agencies in Ukraine and worldwide.
Don’t expect any stoic still lifes; Danylchenko’s photography pops from pages and screens, a playful romp of movement and action. “Something in the photo must fly, drop, break, or smash, through post-production work,” says the artist. The element of motion shows his quest to take food photography further: It’s not an easy feat to pull off… and that’s why he’s doing it.
Danylchenko’s impressive client list includes Samsung, L’Oréal, Esquire, BBDO, Harper’s Bazaar and McDonald’s, to name a few. Below are our favourite picks from his personal and professional portfolio. Visit his website and follow him on Instagram.
