‘The Photography of Modernist Cuisine’ coming to a coffee table near you

When I bought Nathan Myhrvold’s “Modernist Cuisine,” it came with a few prints of some of the stunning photographs that appear in the book. Soon you’ll also be able to see those images in coffee-table-book format and possibly in person at an art exhibition.

In the new book “The Photography of Modernist Cuisine,” you’ll find highlights from the more than 500,000 photographs taken for “Modernist Cuisine.” The photo book will be released in mid-October at a cost of $120.

And if you’re lucky enough to be in Seattle between Oct. 26 and Feb. 17, you can see 100 of these images, many over six feet in size, on display. After completing its run in Seattle, the exhibit will travel to other cities including New York, Los Angeles, Chicago and Miami. Tour dates and schedules are still being confirmed.

In a press release, Myhrvold said, “I hope that others share with us the child-like wonder and curiosity I feel when looking at these photos. The exhibition and book are in many ways a culmination of my lifelong interest in photography, in much the same way that ‘Modernist Cuisine’ was a milestone in my interest in food.”

If you have a location where the exhibit can be hosted in Atlanta and have some pull, you can email the organizers here.

See the video below for a preview of some of the images included in the book and exhibit. Food porn at its finest!

Looks like a beautiful book, but at $120, it won’t be on any coffee tables near me!

I saw that in your visits to 30 restaurants that you visited Highland Tap but did not comment on it as far as a review goes. I live in the Highland’s and have visited The Tap on several occasions, mostly the bar. On my last visit I was shocked to see a health inspectors score of 65 on the inspection sheet posted at the hostess station. I was further shocked to see their steak prices. I remember when I first started coming to The Tap that it seemed to be a deal for what you got. Now it appears to be approching Bones prices with steaks for sale at $37.00 for a 12oz. Filet and $33.00 for a 12 oz. ribey ( none of their steaks are prime). I will not be visiting The Tap any more because I can’t afford it and its dirty.

Hey Anna Krouse, are you drunk? What in the hell does your post have to do with the topic of a book of food photography?

Not to mention that it was John Kessler who wrote the 30 days piece.

You got fired from highland tap right?

@Dumpy, many of our participants seem to have the blogging equivalent of Tourette’s Syndrome and I’m not just referring to @Anna…. I wish the Blog Administrator would grow a pair and get rid of those posts that are irrelevant and particularly those that are crass and offensive.
