a conversation with an art director…

gourmetIt came as much of a shock to us as to everyone else when the call came in that Gourmet and Cookie were closing.  It was not because we had a number of photographers that had jobs lined up in the calendar – which they did, or that Marcus Nilsson had just returned from a week long shoot with Gourmet – which he did, but that we couldn’t believe they had met the same fate as Domino.  If you want to lament with the rest of the world, visit – There are a number of posts commenting on the beauty and style of the photography used, one of them was particularly interesting:

“… The magazine turned food photography on its head.  There was a richness about their photos.  They worked with photographers whose work is very sensual, and that became their house style in a way.  I think there was a love and respect of pictures and you see that on their pages.  It felt very passionate.  You looked at the pictures and you were inspired to make something.”

– James Dunlinson, design director at Martha Stewart Living

balloon breakfast

David Sykes shot this “light breakfast” for a personal project – it has been featured and raved on a number of blogs over the past few months such as aphotoeditor,  swissmiss, sayyestohoboken, and core77 to name a few.  David has continued his food series with the latest “spaghetti and meatballs” shot with a barrage of gym equipment (including socks and towels for the cheese).
