La Figa News

Posted on

As you may know, my primary photographic project right now is La Figa: Visions of Food and Form, a photographic exploration of food and the human body that I am working on in conjunction with chef Tiberio Simone.  A couple updates on that:

First, I have just put up a brand new site for the project – There are a some new photographs from the series that have not been online yet, and a separate La Figa only email announcement list you can sign up for. However if you are on my photography announcement list you will receive all the La Figa information.

Secondly, we have been talking to the organizers of the Seattle Erotic Art Festival, and we can now confirm that Tiberio and I are going to have a major presence at the 2009 event. This is a very exciting development for us – it is probably the preeminent erotic art festival in the country (at least it comes to the top of a google search for “erotic art festival”).

I am going to post a few highlights from this year’s La Figa shoots to this blog, so keep an eye on the rss feed.

At this point we are cutting down on the shooting and working on putting together a solid book proposal to start sending out. So if you have any good connections to literary agents, please let us know.

La Figa: Visions of Food and Form is a book featuring a spectacular collection of sensual photography – models wearing nothing but the edible creations of James Beard award-winning chef Tiberio Simone. Using the human body as his canvas, and natural fresh ingredients as his paint, Simone’s elegant and tasteful nude images are the culmination of a five year collaboration with photographer Matt Freedman.
