In late 2011, photographer Ture Lillegraven traveled to Tokyo with captains of their industries – comedian Aziz Ansari, chef David Chang, musician/producer James Murphy and GQ writer Brett Martin. Avid Twitter-user Ansari posted that he and his pals should go to Tokyo with the caveat that someone else should pay for it. GQ answered, and obliged. The photographic result was a smattering of energetic, fun and colorful Lillegraven images. It’s safe to say they had a good time. Lillegraven compiled outtakes from the Tokyo shoot in a promo book he sent out earlier this year, simply called “TURE: Three Photographic Projects from Ture Lillegraven” that included this adventure, Bon Iver frontman Justin Vernon photographed in rural Wisconsin and the band Milo Greene shot in Big Sur, California.
Aziz Ansari is currently on tour. Check him out tonight at the Palace Theatre in Albany, NY.

Austin-based food and lifestyle photographer, Jody Horton, has had the awesome opportunity to photograph a few cookbooks in his day. The first is “Afield: A Chef’s Guide to Preparing and Cooking Wild Game and Fish” by Jesse Griffiths (Welcome, 2012) which was recently nominated as a finalist by the James Beard Foundation Awards committee in the Cookbooks: Single Subject category. Kudos to Horton for making such lovely images out of butchered wild game. His second cookbook, “Smoke: New Firewood Cooking” by Tim Byres (Rizzoli, 2013) will be released April 30.
Horton says that shooting editorial and commercial work rarely allows more than a handful days on a subject. “In contrast, shooting cookbooks has given me the opportunity to work on projects that are much broader in scope and richer in detail – often over many weeks or months.” Buy a copy of “Afield” here. You never know when you’ll have a to make Crappie Croquettes or Bad-Day Dove Risotto.

Still-life photographer Liz McBurney‘s whimsical series of images featuring pieces of processed meat was “inspired by the patterns and textures in processed meat and how similar it is becoming to man-made fabrics,” she says. The work began as a personal project, then led to an assignment from the weekend edition of The Guardian in June to shoot photographs for an article about the race among scientists to produce artificial meat in the laboratory.

Here’s a view of New York, taken by Joel Meyerowitz, that we hope will bring some cheer to New Yorkers in the midst of difficult times. Joel Meyerowitz’s playful street photography from the 1960s is on view at Howard Greenberg Gallery, 50 Years of Photographs. The image New York City, Times Square, 1963, shows a theater cashier, her face obscured by a round ticket window speaker. The exhibition, in two parts — Part l -1962-1972 on view November 2–December 1, 2012 and and Part ll – 1978-2012 on view December 7, 2012–January 5, 2013 — includes seminal street scenes (both color and black-and-white), intimate images of American life, and landscapes exploring luminous scenes from Cape Cod to Tuscany. The exhibition coincides with the publication of a major book from Phaidon Press.
Maryland based photographer Steve Buchannan, known for his food and architecture work, received First Place in last year’s inaugural photo contest Objects of Desire with this image from his food portfolio. The 2012 Objects of Desire contest features three categories, Food and Still Life, Objects and Interiors and Beloved. The deadline to apply has been extended until today, July 26.
