Each year, SELF Magazine showcases a selection of prepared foods or grocery store items that they deem healthier options compared to (heavily processed) alternatives. This year, they shook things up by commissioning a series of lifestyle shots rather than just showing the products in a lightbox. Christina Holmes, Pamela Duncan Silver and I created these images for them.
And, of course, some outtakes:
Photographer Christina Holmes and I created these images to accompany Goksu Kuna's essay "A Fish in a Bottle of Raki" from the Winter '14 issue of The Carton, the alt/food/art magazine based in Beirut. We drew our inspiration from the Islamic art surrounding the story's setting on the beaches of Turkey and used traditional mezze to build the pattern. We also wanted to capture the moment when Raki changes opacity as it cools in a glass filled with ice for the story's opener.
