Wine Tasting

Wine tasting – a sensory journey

This series was awarded the “Grand Prix de la Creativité” by the Federation Photographique de France in 2018.

The idea behind these images was to express, through the medium of photography, the sensual experience, sights, sounds, smell and taste of a wine tasting. I used to have my own vineyard and have tasted professionally so I have a lot of experience in the subject.

The idea for the photographs came while I was drinking wine and listening to classical music. It occurred to me that if you can express images with music, why not tastes, sounds and smells with images? As far as I know nobody has ever tried to do this.

These images are intended to convey feelings and expressions rather than to give a purely visual record.
