I'm a professional food photographer. Originally from Sweden, I moved to Tuscany, Italy in 1994 years ago where the light and the food are my constant sources of inspiration.

    Rachel.Ellice.Photography says:

    "Ilva has a wonderful eye for food images, and in capturing the quiet spirit in the land around her. She has a distinctive use of clear, soft light and colors. And I always love to look at her food shots, as they look good enough to reach out and eat, and landscapes that are perfect to step into."

    "Ilva's photos feed the soul. She has a wonderful eye and fresh perspective, and her photos are an artist's palette of colors, patterns, and texture."

    "I love Ilvas pictures - they're something to hunger for, either they're shots of food, nature or some special detail in her Tuscan surroundings. Her photos together with her recipies and comments on Italian everyday life are necessary ingredients in life soup :)"
