Andrea Nakayama is a nutritionist I photographed recently for a story in a seniors newspaper. She recommends a diet based on whole foods, including things like yoghurt, nuts, kimchi and fruit, and eliminating refined sugar, dairy and gluten. She had some of the props—the “good” stuff of course, and a few bags of chips and cookies she uses to teach her classes. The other “bad” stuff, like sugar, milk and bread, I brought from my own kitchen!
We made some portraits of Andrea on that theme in her kitchen and then, because she has this gorgeous sunlit eating area off her kitchen, we made some additional portraits of her snacking on hazel nuts in there.
