Humans have done a beautiful job of morphing necessity into pageantry. I love that we meet up with old friends over brunch and celebrate new job acquisitions with a dinner reservation. I love traveling and experiencing traditional meals adored by people living in that particular place. But what I love the most about food is the way it can convey an I love you with just a little effort and heart.

I have been photographing restaurants, chefs, and friends’ homecooked meals since forever. The table is a place where creativity can translate into care.

Oof, this is definitely something that resonates with my soul.
