Nicole Banffy – Nesbitt - began her photographic journey when traveling in 1995. With a point and shoot 35 mm film camera, she began to explore the urban and wilderness landscapes of Asia. In time, she studied photography and the effects of light on image. While continuing to travel, this time through Central America and the California wilderness, she developed a personal style focused on line, shape and texture. With this book, she has had the opportunity to narrow in even closer on an entirely new landscape at a macro level. That landscape was food. It is a vibrant one of color, texture, and uniquely one of taste.
