Ilva’s Delights

A Swedish photographer living in Tuscany, Ilva’s unique style is the fashion of Scandinavian obsession with light, and Italian obsession with food.

Ilva’s work in food and beverage does not take the standard approach. Transmitting gastronomic culture, lifestyle, and elegance in her shots — Ilva is known for her dramatic lighting and classical settings, photographed with technical precision. Most recently Ilva published a cookbook, featuring natural and stunning photographs of vegetables and dishes from Tuscan gardens.
