What inspires you when you travel?
For one food blogger a recent trip to Italy helped expand her focus outside the scope of food. That blogger is Stephanie Simpson and our weekly Photo Book Profile is on her Photo Book – Plates and Planes.
Stephanie is a Photographer and Research Assistant from Alberta, Canada. Her Photo Book is a wonderful combination of beautiful landscapes and recipes she shared on her blog during her time in Italy.
Enjoy a few select images from her Photo Book and learn what inspired her to create Plates and Planes
Stephanie - I’ve been interested in food for as long as I’ve been interested in photography, and so it only made sense to combine the two. I share my photos on my food blog, where I use them to help make cooking accessible to people who don’t have a lot of experience in the kitchen. I spent a few months of last year in Italy, and the photo book I created using Moleskine+MILK includes a handful of Italian recipes I shared on my site while I was there”.
Stephanie – I think there’s something really exciting about capturing beauty in the ordinary. Spending time in Italy, where everyday life takes place against the backdrop of incredible architecture and landscapes was a great way to start exploring that idea outside the scope of food. It’ll be fun to bring that sensibility to new places! In my research work, I come into contact with some pretty cool ideas about how people think about food and the environment. I hope to draw from those ideas to create photos that will impact the choices people make about what they eat”.
