After a week spent in Israel with a great friend as well as chef while dramatic changes reverberated throughout the region, I am reflecting on two especially sweet moments to mark the upcoming Valentine’s Day. These are from the Kayser Boulangerie series of books I worked on in partnership with my friend whom I mentioned above, the extremely talented chef Yair Yosefi. A glorious chocolate cake perched on top of the flour-covered hand of a baker and an incredibly inventive Almond Cream with Strawberry coulis and topped with fresh strawberries. Living in Paris gives me the opportunity to surround myself with food and landscape photo opportunities that burst at the seams with flavor as well as layer upon layer of history literally around every corner and in every detail. Please enjoy a sweet Valentine’s Day 2011.
Technical Details – Both images were shot identically, Canon 1Ds Mark II, 100mm Macro Lens, F 2.8, ISO 100.
