Humans & Food: Breaking Bread

In late 2015, I decided to take my passion for photography and focus on the culinary genre. After about a year of curating work for chefs, restaurants and hospitality groups I realized that I didn’t have a body of work that brought meaning to my passion. I realized that beyond my love of culinary photography there was a passion for people. This spurred the idea for ‘Humans and Food’.

'Humans and Food' is the beginning of an extended study on our relationship to others through food. This first set, 'Breaking Bread', is a representation of offering up what we have to others, sharing a meal, sharing conversation. Tragically we see a lot of division caused by race, gender, socioeconomics and politics. People are more closed off than ever. I realized that shared interest can break down those walls and food is a necessity we can all find common ground in.
