Food and interior photographer John Granen has recently photographed a cook book called Coming Home, A Seasonal Guide to Creating Family and Traditions by Rosanna Bowles.
In these pages, you'll find some of Rosanna's favorite recipes that she cooks herself, tips on how to beautify your home in aesthetic and emotional ways, and a few peeks into her own family's rituals, traditions, and travels. Rosanna wrote Coming Home as a seasonal guide in the hopes that organizing the book this way will help readers recognize how simple it can be to live well all year round.
And as always, John photographs Rosanna's dishes with such artful finesse that the food comes to life on the page. It's no wonder you come away from the book hungry and enthusiastic about forming your own family family traditions and rituals.
Lifestyle photographer Marcy Maloy was profiled in the SF Chronicle for participation in this season's reality show, The Amazing Race. Marcy and her partner Ron are the oldest participants in the race and will be comepteing against teams who are 35 years younger. A snippet from the article below.
Thanks to a vigorous exercise regimen and playful nature, Maloy is now in one of the biggest games around: She's a competitor on CBS' "Amazing Race," which premiered Sunday. Along with her boyfriend, Ron Shalita, 59, the pair represents the globe-trotting show's oldest competitors.Read more: http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/c/a/2009/09/28/DD5A19R5OF.DTL#ixzz0Sbgwi3Rp

Exciting news, conceptual photographer Henry Blackham was just awarded the Graphis Gold for his "Kid Band" image. Henry, known for his sly humor and visual social commentary has once again impressed the judges at Graphis (he won in 2008 for his dog walker image).
"It's always fun to see how your vision stacks up against the competition. When you win an award it just helps to reinforce your natural inclination toward a certain style or feeling," says Blackham. "I definitely appreciate the feedback in the form of an award."
Henry's work can been seen both at http://www.sallyreps.com/ and at his own personal site http://www.henryblackham.com/.
