Food Portraits.

While New York, I had the good fortune to have dinner with two amazing writers: Siri Hustvedt and Paul Auster, who are good friends of my father-in-law. Small world, eh? Anyhow, I wanted to get portraits of the two of them, but I also really wanted to shy away from anything featuring the face as it felt too “paparazzi” for me. What I came up with was portraits through food – these feel very intimate to me, but without being intrusive or exploitative.


Edamame featuring Siri Hustvedt’s hands.



Paul Auster’s wine glass and pistachio shells.
