Salad Mix with Edible Flowers

Salad Days in New York

My photo of Yuno’s Farm’s salad mix with broccoli raab flowers above is featured in this week’s New York Magazine in an article called “Salad Days” on page 104.

Kenro Izu: Bhutan: The Sacred Within

Kenro Izu, “Druk #131”, Taksang Monastery, Paro, Bhutan 2003 Kenro Izu: Bhutan, the Sacred Within November 2, 2007–February 18, 2008 Rubin Museum of Art 150 West 17th Street, New York, NY 10011 What a treat to hear Kenro Izu talk with Owen Flanagan at the Rubin Museum of Art in conjunction with the opening of his exhibition of photographs, “Bhutan: The Sacred Within.” Kenro Izu’s been exploring and photographing sacred sites both natural and manmade for decades. To look at his landscapes of sacred places around the world is to enter them; you can almost smell and taste the air inside the image.

ecolo at alessi

Dropped in to the new light and uplifting Alessi store in SoHo designed by Hani Rashid of Asymptote. Their witty designs on every day objects always make me smile, but the “product” that captured my heart on this visit was Ecolo, a glorified set of instructions by Enzo Mari on how to recycle used plastic bottles into elegant flower vases.
