The Catalan photographer Francesc Guillamet is from Figueres, Salvador Dali’s hometown. He was also responsible for photographing Chef Ferran Adria’s inventions and experiments at the legendary restaurant El Bulli. In Spring 2011, his photographs were shown in Barcelona for the exhibition Eating Art, alongside works by Martin Parr, Daniel Spoerri and Pablo Picasso.
