First place - Lorrie Graham
We loved all of of Lorrie's images, the combination of moody lighting and home-cooked dinners and treats made us want to be at the table with her. Each image carefully put together with soft linens and an unexpected use of our silhouettes.
"I started collecting Mud products in the mid 90’s when the finish was more egg shell than it is now. But started baking in mud when the first square baker dish came on the market. I use my Mud products everyday. I particularly like the slice tray. I love the product because I can make a meal and it will happily and beautifully go from oven to table. The unique aspect of Mud is that it looks beautiful at the same time as being incredible practical.
I have worked as a photojournalist for over 40 years. I love the Baked in Mud competition because it takes my skills as a photographer into an area I have never worked in or contemplated. I only really started cooking about ten years ago. So the combination of cooking and photographing the food is a lot of fun, pure joy. Very different from the world of my work."
