I recently finished shooting location images for a new cookbook by Kansas City author, Judith Fertig. HEARTLAND involved covering food, farming and landscapes, in eight midwest states over eighteen months. Publication spring 2011.
"Residents of the Midwest have been living off the bounty of the land since the pioneer days. Judith Fertig's HEARTLAND melds contemporary cooking with an authentic approach to the land, presenting 150 recipes for farm-bounty fare with a modern twist. With a focus on ethnic food traditions as well as seasonal flavors of artisan producers, heirloom ingredients and heritage meats Heartland embraces the spirit and flavors of the modern farmhouse. HEARTLAND includes lush full-color landscape and food photography that showcases the heart of American cooking from the nations heartland."
In STAY COOL award-winning polar photographer Jonathan Chester and
writer Patrick Regan reveal the uncanny life lessons to be learned from polar bears, those imposing but endlessly appealing kings of the Arctic.
Pithy, clever, and surprisingly heartwarming,
illustrates that these wild creatures with a strong sense of self and the ability to rely on their instincts have something useful to teach us all.
TO LOVE IS TO FLY
Anyone who's ever been in love knows that this supreme emotion changes everything. When love is real, it sometimes feels like gravity itself doesn't quite apply. In TO LOVE IS TO FLY, this magical and powerful journey is told through photographer Jonathan Chester's stunning photography of penguins, along with refreshingly heartfelt prose.
