Food Photography at Spiga in Hong Kong

Interior photo at Spiga restaurant in Hong Kong

Dining Concepts asked me to make a few new marketing pictures at SPIGA Hong Kong last year. The restaurant is located in the center of Central, so to speak, in one of the many steel and glass buildings that line Queen's Road.

The interior was imagined by celebrity designer Joyce Wang and has a hip mid-century theme that verges on steampunk. Brass light fixtures and distressed tile work abound, as do colors and patterns that appear to be plundered from a forgotten far away diner. The collective theatrical assembly is framed by the confluence of the restaurant's decorative sweated copper plumbing and the building's swanky angular surroundings.

Dirty Shrimp - Documentary Photography at Aquatic Farms in China

A worker feeds fish at Datianglang Village, Huilong Town, Zhaoqing.

Earlier this winter, Businessweek commissioned me to muck around a few farms near Jiangmen, China to make pictures for their cover story How Antibiotic-Tainted Seafood From China Ends Up on Your Table. The piece is really about transshipping - a business procedure used to circumvent international import restrictions - but as approached from a food safety angle.
