AND HERE I AM WITH MY CRAPPY PHONE CAMERA

When I flip through articles about Ferran Adria's dishes at El Bulli, and after I lose my mind about the sheer impossibility of ever getting a reservation there, I often wonder if it would be appropriate to hang a picture of one of his dishes. Most people recognize that they're works of art...and that's without ever having tasted them.

Part of that is due to Francesc Guillamet, the only photographer trusted by Adria to document his work. He's taken every single photo in every single book put out by El Bulli: a great feat considering the sheer volume and intricacies of each dish (some of the dishes only last a few minutes, which allows Guillamet a minimal amount of time to prep the shoot). He's got his own book out - Comer Arte - which documents their 17 year partnership.

Here's a video on Guillamet:
