Food connects us all, it’s a common thread we humans share; a universal language used in the savoring of life. Food expresses who we are and where we come from. It dissolves our differences and reconnects us with the earth. Food brings us together for a point in time in which we laugh, we love and we sometimes cry; it’s within these moments we share a part of ourselves. Beyond merely nourishing the body, what we eat and with whom we eat can inspire and strengthen the bonds between individuals, communities, and even countries. Food shapes who we are as people and how we feel.

The moments in which we share food are happening every day all around us all the time; it is at this intersection between the science of photography and the essence of food preparation that my passion for food images begins. Food inspires us all to explore our creativity and in the production of “Story on a Plate”, I strive to share an intimacy with the viewer through close compositions, subtle lighting, complimentary color and distinctive camera angles.

“Story on a Plate” is a body of work dedicated to showing the creative skills and unique or favorite food traditions of the people I have met along my journey into the food world.
