My friend and Oakland neighbor, Emily Nathan, has been working hard to create Tiny Atlas Quarterly, an online and print travel publication featuring inspiring travel images by some amazing photographers and illustrators. Emily started this magazine as a personal project and has invited many artists to contribute and collaborate. I was excited to have some of my photos featured in the Places section and Portraits section. You can buy the print version of the magazine or find in stores.
I am so excited that my cookbook Bitter is finally out in stores on Sept. 16th! Ten Speed Press was great to work with and gave me a lot of creative freedom to visually interpret the idea of bitterness, a compelling topic with lots of my favorite foods including tea, coffee, cocoa, greens and citrus. There has been some good press already including stories by the Wall Street Journal , NPR, Huffington Post, Slate, Gardenista and Boing Boing. To see a few more spreads from the book, click HERE.
I've had some really fun stories for SF Magazine which allowed me to hang out with some amazing chefs and artists in the Bay Area. One story is about chefs who live above their restaurants and another is about cochineal leather dye craft.
I shot a story for the WSJ magazine about a restaurant in Culver City which blew my mind. Niki Nakayama, one of the few Japanese female kaiseki chefs, presents an incredible array of dishes in her 13 course prix fixe Japanese menu. I can't wait to return soon…. See the story here
One of my favorite food magazines is Lucky Peach and I was thrilled to shoot a recent story for them – see it here

Here are some installation images of my Soiled show at the Rocket Gallery and Tsutaya Daikanyama T-site Gallery in Tokyo, Japan. It was a blast and Yuri Nomura of Eatrip made some marvelously "soiled" food for the opening at Rocket! The show is down, but the photos, prints and limited edition books are still available. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
