Ice-cream galore – Bompas and Parr: My Extraordinary Life

Bompas and Parr had a pop up event which happened at Noho Studios in London on the Friday 19 May which they called My Extraordinary Life. The reason they put on this event as it was their mission that day to find the greatest ice cream photographer.


I went downstairs when it was my time slot and entered in a room full of different colour pastels in every corner with many different objects to use to display my icecream from a mound of icecream (plastic) to a vase. At the event you could slurp and indulge in as much ice-cream as you wanted. The three flavours that was offered on my session was Salted Caramel, Green Tea and Raspberry whirl.  Without my eyes getting bigger than my belly I held resistant and only had two ice-creams throughout the night as not forgetting this was not really about eating ice-cream even though Haagen-Dazs is delicious it was about photography. So I chose to have a large salted caramel ice-cream firstly and sprinkled with blue balls and white chocolate shaves and used many objects to display my creation from the plastic ice-cream mound to a vase. The next ice-cream I had was the raspberry whirl I decorated it with pink sherbert and some white shavings and thought more outside the box and placed it in the teapot spout and named it ‘brewing an icecream’ however thinking back now I wish I used the green tea but neverless my photo won that session so I got to have my face 3D scanned and it will eventually be re-created into a bespoke Häagen-Dazs ice cream bar which I can’t wait to see.
