From the {Hamptons} Market to the Table

I’ve been working on location lately in the Hamptons for food writer and recipe developer Silvia Lehrer’s next cookbook, Savoring the Hamptons. I was in Silvia’s home in Water Mill, NY for 4 days last week, shooting her recipes and visiting local farms where I shot farmers and artisans with their bees, chickens, cows, goats, calves, vegetables and fish!! There are 8 shoots altogether spanning 4 seasons, and 8 months. Such an incredibly exciting project!

We are currently into the Spring and Summer sections of the book. So much shooting, but we’re nearing the end!

Here are some of the dishes and ingredient shots from the last shoot. My last week’s film is still being developed at the lab… More to come!

Food and Art {Polaroids}

Happy Friday! I hope you have some nice plans for the weekend.

I'm in the process of revamping my food website — it's been way too long! The weddings took over for a while and now I'm craving a little Food and Art (www.FoodandArt.com) re-design!

I am currently shooting for a cookbook, to be published in the Spring of 2011, so I will have a lot of new work to display. I've also been drawn to some of my older, unshown work and in particular my old Polaroids. I hope to include a few of those on my redesigned site… 

Here are a few favorites which I scanned yesterday:

Image of the Month: Chestnut Hill Cherry Blossoms

KarenWiseChestnutHillCherryTree

On
a recent trip to Pennsylvania with Chandler, I bought a few rolls of
120 film and loaded them in my Holga. As we walked through Chestnut
Hill, around The Morris Arboretum, along the Wissahickon Creek and
through Philly I snapped away…


This one image of a cherry blossom tree stands out from the rest for
me. I love how the tree is backlit, with the contrasting color of the
green grass and the stone architecture behind it.

In November I shot this destination wedding which took place in Canouan, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, a small island a puddle jumper's flight away from Barbados. 

These images were shot both digitally and on film. I used the Contax 645 for a lot of them and the Canon 5D Mark II for some of the ceremony and for the dancing. 

The Holga images were made by Megan Greenlee.  And the wonderfully stylish Malin Wong was responsible for the Event Planning, through her company Lavender May.
