Happy New Year, folks. 2011 was packed with experiences and opportunities that I hope to build on for years to come. To begin, I’m launching a new photo project that I’m very excited about, called Food/Work.
Expanding on the Butchery project of the last few years and the kitchen shoots I’ve done in the last several months, Food/Work explores the real effort that gets food on our tables. Following the examples of Michael Harlan Turkell’s Back of House series and my friend Donny’s Foodaisance project, I want to call attention to the work that goes into cooking, preparing, cutting, cultivating and even killing the food that so many of us enjoy and obsess over.
Although the project will not be limited to Brooklyn, starting Wednesday, I’ll be posting some photos on Nona Brooklyn every other week. The first post went up last month with photos of Emily Cavalier cooking dishes for November’s Midnight Brunch supper club.
So, stay tuned. The slideshow above is just a preview of what’s to come.
