Marcus Nilsson traveled to Portland, OR to shoot for the "Best New Restaurants in America" issue of Bon Appetit. Number four on the list is Luce, an authentic, simple restaurant that, according to the feature is, "Italian home cooking to its core". Some of the dishes on the menu that sound absolutely delish and look even better (awesome shots, Marcus!) are "Eggplant, Mozarella and Saffron rice bake", "Spaghettini with Garlic and Dried Chile", "Braised Chicken with Capers and Parsley". Check them out below!:
Is it lunch time?
The summer is wrapping up, like it or not, and while they are probably not jumping at the idea...it's time for the kids to head back to school! It's important to start thinking about what good habits you will instill in your kids now that the summer fun is behind us and it's time to get back to business as usual! An important aspect of building good habits is to ensure that we teach our youth about healthy eating and address the childhood obesity epidemic in this country head on.
Amy Postle shot a really compelling two part story for Parents Magazine (found in the August and September issues) about the disease and it's impact on American families. Take a look at the stories below:
Part 1- Found in August Issue of Parents Magazine
Part 2- Found in September Issue of Parents Magazine
So, the story that Tom Watson shot for Redbook has nothing to do with Tennis but we figured in honor of the first day of the US Open, we would title our blog post something festive and Tennis related!
Trying to figure out what outfits make the most sense to purchase now that Fall is right around the corner? Take a look at the "Match Points" feature in Septembers issue of Redbook Magazine. Apparently, "matching is back!" Take a look:
In mid-July Marcus Nilsson and his team came together to do a shoot for Chobani Yogurt. There has been a ton of buzz about the opening of the Chobani Yogurt bar here in NYC's trendy SoHo and we are excited that Marcus was asked to shoot the advertising!
Don't know what this "yogurt craze" is all about? Here is some info on Chobani and the store from a recent article in INC magazine:
"The new shop sells an array of sweet and savory fresh, chilled yogurt options (under $4 per bowl). The location will act as a sort of testing site for new flavor concoctions. On opening day, the most popular flavor was a pistachio and chocolate, which includes fresh yogurt from the New York yogurt plant, as well as honey, oranges, and mint leaves." (pretty genius if you ask us...more after jump!)
Take a look at some more of the images that Marcus shot below and keep scrolling to see some awesome behind the scenes snapped at the shoot!
Shoppers can also purchase some of the beautiful and lush ingredients from the images above at Chobani SoHo!
Continue scrolling for some behind the scenes images of Marcus and the team!:
Head down to the Chobani SoHo store and check out the ads in person! And while you're there, pick up a yogurt creation. Our suggestion? Peanut Butter and Jelly!
The September issue of InStyle hit newsstands last week and it is the largest issue in the magazines history! 652 pages of trends, fall fashion, beauty and "life", InStyle asked James Merrell to shoot the legendary Missoni family at their home in Italy! Within walking distance of the company's factory about an hour North of Milan, the Missoni family has a colorful and beautiful home that allows for the family of wildly creative visionaries to be inspired constantly.
Take a peek at the story below:
As mentioned in the article, Americans are really taken by the Missoni Home peices considering they are both practical and playful. Thanks to James' images, we can see the Missoni home and how they live and that it directly influences their designs and products.
This weekend is supposed to be another rainy one here in New York, so why not seek refuge at the Guggenheim? Dotted throughout the museum, in the galleries adjacent to the main spiral is a wonderful photography exhibit: Rineke Dijkstra: A Retrospective.
According to the Guggenheim's Senior Curator of Photography, Jennifer Blessing:
"Since the early 1990s, Rineke Dijkstra has produced a complex body of photographic and video work, offering a contemporary take on the genre of portraiture. Her large-scale color photographs of young, typically adolescent subjects recall 17th-century Dutch painting in their scale and visual acuity. The minimal contextual details present in her photographs and videos encourage us to focus on the exchange between photographer and subject and the relationship between viewer and viewed."
Each gallery displays a different aspect of Dijkstra's work, from the portraits that capture the essense of awkward youth, to the subjects she photographed for years, creating a visual timeline of physical and emotional maturity. The exhbit even includes some of Dijkstra's lesser known, but very entertaining, video work. Don't miss the young girl lip-synching to her favorite Backstreet Boys song!
Here's an insider tip for when you visit the Guggenheim: Take the elevator up to the top, and work your way down the sprial. That's how Frank Lloyd Wright intended you to experience the museum!
We had a great visit with Hugh Stewart today who is here in New York from London. Hugh is based in Australia but spending some time between London and New York this summer! Glad to have him on this side of the pond!
Since he's been over in London, Hugh's been shooting a bunch for Vogue UK. Although he's been shooting portraits and interiors for Vogue, the editors fell in love with his personal still life images. They love them so much that he was featured on The Vogue Blog: Art Online! Check out the story here!
Not only do they love his images (what's not to love - they are beautiful!) but everyone is abuzz about his print ordering system. Interested in getting your hands on one of Hugh's gorgeous prints? Check out his gallery here!
Popular Mechanics magazine is running a feature story guiding the "do it yourselfer" through the steps (with pictures) of how to make your own Fire Pit. Lajos Geenen captured the shots over the course of the day that it took the Popular Mechanics editor and friend to complete the project. Take a look at the story! It may just inspire you! Sitting around the Fire Pit is a true summer past time. Thanks to this story, you can do it yourself!
It's Monday and the 2012 summer Olympics have come to a close. All the medals have been awarded and the athletes that traveled from far and wide are returning home to their countries. It's hard to believe how the time flew by!
Many of the JMI photographers live in London and have had unique and exciting experiences living in the host city. We had the opportunity to catch up with Sue Parkhill, a resident of East London who got to witness first hand the Olympic excitement. Here are some of her thoughts on all things London 2012, and some great shots she got throughout the two weeks of games.
What's your favorite Olympic sport?
Women's Gymnastics. Nadia Comanici was a childhood hero of mine.
People have had mixed reactions, what did you think of the opening ceremony?
I thought it was brilliant- quirky, amusing, political, filmic.
Although you originally are from Australia, are you Team GB? Or do you decide on who you're rooting for based on something else?
You know, I'm all over the place. Go Usain Bolt; Go Beth Tweedle; Go Michael Phelps; Go Sally Pearson....
Have you been to any events?
Synchronized swimming was the one for me. I did try to get tickets for the gymnastics too but was pretty happy with just synchronized swimming. Just being in the Olympic Park is amazing- you should see the flowers and trees that have been planted.
We can imagine that the security in the park is insane! What's the protocol for taking pictures? Surely anyone with a phone with camera capability can snap images easily but can you bring in "real" cameras?
Security was tight, but just like airport security, so a routine we are pretty familiar with. It wasn't a problem to take cameras in. There were army guys everywhere making sure everything was ok but it was very low key and friendly.
Yes, Olympics are exciting, but what's it like living a city that becomes even more overwhelmed with tourists than usual? Does the city feel different to you?
I have loved the vibe of London while the Olympics have been on and I live in East London. People have been playing "a bit hard to get" (not me!), but many have also succumbed to the Olympic charm at the last minute.
Many thanks to Sue Parkhill for sharing her thoughts and snapshots of the Olympics! Next stop, Sochi winter games 2014!
Check out these delicious shots taken by Lucy Schaeffer for Food & Wine, on stands now!
Those Lamb Burgers might just be what we cook next!...mmmmm. What are you planning to cook this weekend?
