Summer in Pictures
In 2009, I began photographing the Treasure Valley’s food and agriculture scene. I was intrigued by this eclectic group’s ceaseless devotion to local food.
On some occasions, my day began in a field with a muddy, overalled farmer and ended in a lounge with a polished, bowtied bartender mentioning the herbs grown by that same farmer. It made me realize that our community is connected in wonderfully unexpected ways.
Over the years, I’ve shot everything from livestock to agricultural landscapes to artfully plated meals. I’ve tried to capture all the wonderful things Boise has to offer—from flaky French croissants to complex craft cocktails to piping hot Ethiopian stews.
Seasons change, menus evolve and our food community continues to grow, constantly providing a visual feast of patterns, textures and colors. I’ve especially enjoyed capturing the faces of the farmers in their fields, chefs in their kitchens and all those food patrons enjoying the results of all that labor.
