Aaron Tilley

United Kingdom

London-based photographer Aaron Tilley’s work is both highly technical and playful—all at once. Best known for challenging perceptions of food, space, and movement in his work, materiality is at the very heart of Tilley’s practice, as he explores texture and questions the ways in which we perceive food as objects. His projects, notably “Food Landscapes” and “Anxious Anticipation,” explore food as the building blocks of an imaginary world; the latter, shot in collaboration with Kyle Bean for Kinfolk magazine’s adrenaline issue (a series that WePresent spoke to Aaron and Kyle about), is a study of precariousness. Through imaginary scenarios, the viewer’s sense of anxiety is provoked.
