Before I even get into how amazing Brittany Wright's food Instagram is, a bit about her underrated profession: Food stylists and foodstagrammers do some pretty incredible things. They've put together a map of the world made entirely out of food and been crowned winner of The Taste. They also touch so much more than we think. Anytime you see an aesthetically pleasing food porn pic on the front of New York Magazine, or even on the back cover of a Whole Food's brochure, a food stylist was probably involved. Their mission is to bring flavor and quality of food to life through placement, coloring and photos.
Once, in the midst of a college graduation crisis, I decided I was going to be a food stylist. I had just learned that it existed as profession, and while melting down about graduation and emailed a long list of food stylists trying to jump start my career. My budding career as a food stylist lasted about a day and a half, before I realized there was more to it than just eating really attractive foods. While it's best that I leave food styling to the pros, I still have a soft spot for sumptuously, well-designed foods. And my fervor for seeking them out on Instagram can't be tamed.
Brittany Wright is a Seattle-based photographer widely known for her healthy and colorful food Instagram. Food is her art, her creative outlet and is currently a huge part of her life. Her color gradients are so on point that over 76 thousand followers have flocked her Instagram.
We need to approach her Instagram in categories, because that's how good these photos are.
Fruits & veggies by Brittany
Vitamin C has never looked so sexy.
If you are obsessed with kale, cruciferous vegetables or pears, this photo probably belongs on the wall of your kitchen. It's hard not to look at these pictures and think of a thousand things you want to make. Food porn on social media has become pretty unhealthy. Looking at pictures of Taco Bell and In-N-Out all day just makes me want anything with extra cheese. Looking at these photos makes me want to go to the Farmer's Market. So it's a win, win.
If I make this my cover photo, is that a copyright infringement?
Too hot. Hot damn.
Followers of Brittany will know that she is planning an amazing food adventure and will be taking us with her (via Instagram). She's road trippin' around the United States and will be documenting farms and the surrounding cities. She's taking crowd sourced advice for where to find the best farms and foods in: Boise, Salt Lake City, Denver, Kansas City, St. Louis, Indianapolis, Detroit, Cleveland, Philadelphia, New York City, Washington D.C., Charlotte, Atlanta, New Orleans, Austin, Albequerque, Phoenix, San Diego, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Portland. Does she need a best friend and/or intern? I volunteer as tribute. (If you have a farm suggestion for her, you can reach Brittany through her website.)
Next category of is the Wright Kitchen Instagram is:
Carbs we need to eat immediately
She's sending me subliminal messages to go make avocado toast and I love it.
If you're headed to Seattle any time soon, this needs to be your first stop.
I'd willingly take the bad day if it meant I could eat all of that pizza. And finally, drumroll for the last category ...
Brittany's egg-cellent egg series
I've never seen eggs look this good without being cooked into a western omelet and served next to a Bloody Mary.
One egg is so not un ouef. (Crushed that joke.)
