Photography by Gabriela Herman
When we began drafting ideas for our 2011 lookbook, the photography of Michael Harlan Turkell immediately came to mind. His "Back of the House" project - a series documenting chefs in their natural environmemnt - is at once a record of kitchen culture and a celebration of the diverse and burgeoning food scene here in Brooklyn. For our lookbook, Michael shifted focus to the front of house, capturing meals and treats from establishments that have become our favourite mainstays. We hope you enjoy these as much as we did photographing them.
