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.
