Ain't Nothin Wrong With Meat & Potatoes

Imagery from a "meat and potatoes" project that involved five different images to be used in a campaign.
On a creative level, it might not have been the most rewarding assignment for the creative team and myself... but nevertheless, I feel fortunate for the wonderful opportunity and the people that I was able to collaborate with.

So with that in mind, I'd like to share some imagery from a previous assignment where I was asked to capture artistic images of almond blossoms in California's Central Valley - Tom Joad country.
It was one of those projects in which my vision was trusted by the powers that be. The imagery was well received and the creative director asked me to return to photograph pistachio blossoms and pomegranates.

Take a look...

".... and in the eyes of the hungry there is a growing wrath. In the souls of the people the grapes of wrath are filling and growing heavy, growing heavy for the vintage."

There is definitely something on the horizon... as I sense it's arrival.
