Ruth Reichl in Conversation with KCRW’s Evan Kleiman

Photos I shot of Ruth Reichl in conversation with 🎙KCRW’s Evan Kleiman🎙at Annenberg Performance Studio at KCRW HQ. It was a lovely evening with celebrated author, chef, and restaurant critic Ruth Reichl, who spoke candidly about her time as the Editor of Gourmet magazine (the subject of her new book Save Me the Plums: My Gourmet Memoir). It’s always a treat to get to document and sit in as people have a conversation about their experiences and work, and what they love. ❤️

Alison & John’s Intimate Ojai Backyard Wedding

It makes total sense to me that you’d get married and celebrate in a place that feels like home. In this case, Alison & John married in the home of Alison’s contemporary dance mentor, and ate dinner with all their family and friends at tables that were planted amongst her backyard fruit trees. 🍋 It’s that kind of abundance that makes you feel full and thankful for a long time afterwards.

Installation Photos: Beatriz Cortez & Rafa Esparza, Nomad 13

I’m happy to share some photos I shot last month for Craft Contemporary of Beatriz & Rafa’s collaborative installation, Nomad 13, on view now through May 12th, 2019!

Los Angeles-based artists Beatriz Cortez and Rafa Esparza present the collaborative installation, Nomad 13 in the museum’s first floor. Taking the form of an unconventional space capsule built from adobe bricks and steel, the structure houses a garden of plants that are indigenous to the Americas and were cultivated by the Inca, Maya, and Aztec civilizations. The garden refers to a long history of plant migration, as well as the knowledge and technological advances of ancient peoples. In symbolically “launching” these plants into the cosmos, the artists evoke the real ongoing experiments of NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration) to grow food in outer space. However, with Nomad 13 the artists envision the growth of fresh food in space for the survival of indigenous knowledge and to nourish future space travelers.
