Venusian kitchen - a lovestory about food
It all started with the book Venusian Kitchen, a collaboration between photographer Elsbeth Tijssen and Henriëtte Tomassen, both founders of Venusian Collective.
Venusian Kitchen is about the kitchen of Venus. Where love and beauty are served. It is an ode to our food and our daily life. It's a celebration of friendship, family and meetings with strangers.
Venusian Kitchen is a series of 150 photographs assimilated in a rich culinary photobook. It's a work of art bursting with intimate portraits, poetry, stories and recipes. Venusian Kitchen is about the beauty of the usual. A romance of two sprouts of chicory. The richness of borlotti beans on a plate. Clouds in the sky. It's the magic of everyday life.
