Photographing for Questlove’s book, Something to Food About, was lots of fun. It was challenging, but the experience gave me a plenty of food for thought. This book features conversations with 10 great chefs, and Questlove delves into how they see the world through the culinary arts, and various other life lessons they have gleaned through cooking. I hope to share more pictures from the book when I finally finish updating my site. During the project, I was introduced to many new and interesting ingredients and discuss full of colours, aroma and textures. People asked me if I got to eat the wonderful meals. Yes, bits and bits, but often I couldn’t focus on the taste too well since I was so caught up in trying to capture the ingredients and food visually in limited time. As for the most memorable dish throughout the project? I think it was a homemade comforting bowl of tofu dish, the chef, Daniel Patterson cooked for us at his house. It was just really casual and hearty, and it was exactly what I needed after shooting punk rock baby chickens, foraged flowers and blue eggs on empty stomach. I want to mention we were very lucky to have the wonderful Jeanette Abbink, designs the book who reminded me how important good design is. Lastly, thanks for Pavla Burgetova Callegari at Savage, and Marla Ulrich at Unthinkable Productions, for throwing such an incredible event showcasing some of the pictures from the book. I am sorry that I’m a week late in posting about the event here. The pictures can be seen by appointment for a few more weeks at Savage, so please check it out if you are in New York. You can read more about the book here! And, you can contact Savage for a viewing here!
