Farm 255

We took a trip to Farm 255 in Athens, GA to photograph for Travel + Leisure magazine. It is a local farm supported resturant. When the farm is in peak production 85% of the food they serve comes from the Farm. It made me  want to try their free range chicken ( I am a vegetarian). Eggplants and okra where coming in. It was a feast for the eyes and my stomach.

I feel blessed to have designed Alabama Chanins Revolution catalog. It combines Charles Moores voter registration work, with designer Natalie Chanin’s clothing designs.

The web has changed so many things that I can have in my life with just a click of a button from things to eat and wear to materals to design with.

Although it can’t run on Mac now, they tell me it will soon.
