This photographic exhibition in the Nicholas building takes well-known Melbourne chefs such as Jacques Reymond, Guy Grossi and Adam D’Sylva out of the kitchen and provides a fresh perspective on their characters, outside the chef whites.
Sydney-based photographer, Daniel Sponair, whose interest in photography began when he was 13 when seeing his father’s photos of his escape from Communist central Europe during the Cold War, specialises in still life and environmental portraiture.
In this portrait exhibition, Daniel tries to represent the complexities behind the person he is photographing to illustrate their inspiration and personality. Yes Chef! shows some of our most respected chefs in these revealing portraits that provide another insight into their lives, as well as what drives their creativity and their success in the kitchen.
The Yes Chef! exhibition can be seen at the Edmund Peace Gallery until 29 March as part of the Melbourne Food and Wine Festival.
