In Japan food and art often come together, especially in the more expensive places. There is pleasure in looking, followed by the pleasure in eating. The serves are small, the very opposite of the West's mantra of All You Can Eat where super serves or repetitive helpings are the prize to seek. Plates loaded with food, one thing shoveled on top of another. What bliss! Give me the Japanese way of eating any time.

Hi Klaudio, Fine shot from japanese restaurant. The small portions, beautifully served and in result you do not see fat people on the streets. Contrary to fish and chips in newspaper, also tasty but rather not healthy.
Warm regards Malgo

hello klaude. i suppose, eating less is one of the key points of living longer. were it not for their famous hardworking, the avarage japanese would probably live more than 100 years. beautiful zen work again, this time the dominant black supports the simplicity a lot.

Well if you put it like this, it is art, don't eat it. But if you must do to survive, I guess I will eat it too. Not all art can be eaten :)
Very cool shot. YOU can use it for the restaurant menu and or advertisment.

Interesantan i dobar tekst o hrani sa opisom ...
Volim da citam o starom Japanu i njihovoj kulturi.
Dobar snimak, lepo pokazana posluzena hrana i pribor, lepe boje.
Lepa fotografija i secanje na posetu Japanu.
Sve najbolje za vikend, srecno.

Love the concept of this....sushi.... this looks very delicious, in fact so good that it makes you very hungry when the subject is dinner. But it also looks artistically presented here and your brief explanation gives a better feel to the exquisite shot. Lovely playing with low lights and colours with enough definition on the vital elements and this looks extremely neat against dark background. Super capture, Congrats
Best wishes to you and your loved ones

I really like your series on Japanese food! The minimalism of the scene and the elegant dark background are very much in tune with Japanese culture.

Hi dear Klaudio,
You're capturing well this Japanese-style meal by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see delicious food with art style. It looks like to one aesthetic sense of the gastronomic culture of Japan which aims at harmony of a color, a vessel, and foods. A traditional Japanese-style dish requires time and effort, and is expensive. And, the problem is that the young man of the present age without money runs to easy food of a fast food etc., and succession of the aesthetics of Japanese-style food is lost, I guess.
