For the last fifteen years Erik Fischer has combined his unique training and experience in photography and cooking to weave stories with his portrait, landscape, and architectural images.

Having been a gourmet chef since the age of sixteen, Fischer’s photographic motivation comes from his travels and residencies throughout the world.  Referring to himself as “The Chef in Exile,” the German-born artist pulls inspiration from places such as Nantucket, Southern France, New York, Virginia, his hometown of Aachen, Germany, and finally Los Angeles where he has resided for the past five years.  Working as a private chef in some of the finest mansions in America, Fischer’s photographic compositions are inspired by the light and flow of interior architectural lines and decor. The aesthetics of the images are created parallel to his intimate knowledge of French cuisine where flavors and textures are synonymous with the details in his macro photography.

Fischer was born in Aachen, Germany and graduated from Alkuinschule with a major in Art History and drawing in 1989.  He then proceeded to culinary school, graduating from Berufskolleg fur Gestaltung und Technik in 1993.  He moved to New York in 1999, and then to Los Angeles in 2004 where he began a short introductory photography class at Park La Brea Art School.  His innate sense of composition, color, and form has allowed him to create moving images without the façade of institutional training, bringing back the notion of pure form and artist subjectivity.  Fischer has received Honorable Mention for his Nantucket Series; has been published in numerous magazines, newspapers, and books; and continues to support charities for breast cancer in which he volunteers his time as an event photographer.
