"My key sounding point is the simplicity I present," Signe Birck says of her work as a food photographer. The same could be said for her customized, monochromatic New Balance NB1 sneakers. "Even though I tried to add a lot of colors, I also took them out again," the New York-by-way-of-Denmark photographer says of how she stripped the shoes of all but their most elemental features. Birck's attitude about her shoes seems to go hand-in-hand with how many of the chefs she works with think about their food: if you're working with quality designs and materials (or ingredients), there's often no need to pile on unnecessary trappings and extra features.
