Eva (b. Eva Natasa, Blitar, 1980) was attracted in practicing food photography when she was living in Milan to pursue her Master in Industrial Design in Istituto Europeo di Design — yes, you can say she is also an Industrial Designer, but to put aside her education, Eva had this indescribable interest in photography when she found a vintage point and shoot camera in a flea market in London, where she lived after she finished her Bachelor of Art in Interior Design. “To be honest I don’t know why after these years I still do it, I just do. I think there are things in live that just comes naturally to you. You either do it or you don’t.”
When we asked her what makes her choose food as objects for her visual exploration, Eva reminisces, “When you live in Italy, it was hard not to be attracted to food, the food culture there is very strong. I started to see that food is not just food. It has its own kind of beauty and I want to capture it.” —
“I use mostly natural light for my photograph, I think that is the best for food.”
Now Eva is residing in her sanctuary in Ubud, Bali, doing what she likes: photographing, designing, cooking and traveling. “I have lived in 10 different cities so far, and I’ve met people from around the world, it makes me approach thing in more than one perspective. And of course every cities has different culture and way of living, all those give me a lot of creative input.”
Verve always believes that a person who studies a lot of things and could become a lot of things will have enriched and more balanced visions in doing his thing, that is why we are eager to recruit people who is actually having more than one talent/skill. And just like most of Verve’s artists, Eva is one of that person.
To name a few, Eva has worked with Moleskine and Foodily.
