Vegetable Delight (Kitchen Series)

Vegetable Delight (Kitchen Series)

Thanks to the customer service department of the Dewitt Barnes & Noble for unveiling for us the newly arrived The Photography of the Modernist Cuisine by Nathan Myhrvold recently. The coffee-table book, which may be more dense and  than a coffee table itself, features the perfect blend of science, photography and gastronomy. The macro shots, microscopic shots and high-speed shots are captured in Myhrvold’s lab/kitchen using a variety of cameras puts a new-school, almost Gladwellian spin on previous a previous work by Charles Jones.  Here is a clip of Myhrvold talking to Charlie Rose this week about the project. The book is a great gift idea for all you photographers, scientists or body builders.

Communication isn’t about speaking, it’s about listening (and shooting)

A few days ago it was announced that bi-urban (Syracuse and Brooklyn) photographer/artist/filmmaker/legend Carrie Mae Weems was a recipient of the 2013 MacArthur Fellowship.  Her work will also be on display for the 40th anniversary of Light Work Gallery in Syracuse. The Light Work reception is later today.

Check out some of these visuals from Terrence Jennings capturing Weems at her 60th birthday celebration in NYC earlier this year.

“To change a community, you have to change the soil.” - Ron Finley  


I’d like to thank the students I had the chance to meet and work with at Westside Academy at Blodgett this year. We took a journey and learned from each other. After the first day I thought a lot about the Tony Danza Book,  I’d Like to Apologize to Every Teacher I Ever Had

We did photo walks, technical research, contests and model shoots, and their skill levels continued to rise to the challenge. But soon I noticed that the children were teaching me as much about creativity and expression as I taught them about photography. Visiting the Westside neighborhood daily was an eye-opening experience. The assignment helped me become a better photographer and a better person.

Also, a special shout-out to Ms. Darby (the program director), Mr. Hicks (the principal), and Syracuse City School District alum Adrian Sicam (the multi-talented artist who allowed SIF to use his music for this piece).

Digital Lifestyle

It’s hard to imagine a way to share so many different views of the city that can be found in this current contest (Syracusescapes) without the proliferation of digital cameras (including phones, tablets, etc) and social media.
