Alvin on his influence: Hiroshige was often concerned with scenes of everyday life and of nature in his work. But what was striking about it was that it often displayed rich vivid colours and were captured from unusual perspectives. That's what i want to do with this food. Take the everyday, the pedestrian, the neglected—eggs, potatoes, turnips, bacon—and turn them into something beautiful. Make it something that with seen through the right eyes, can be a feast for the tongue (retina).
