During 11 years of shooting restaurants for Westword and other publications, I’ve found more of interest than food and interiors. In restaurants diners are active participants in their own entertainment, making that environment a ripe and vibrant subject for photography. By shooting close and candid as a street photographer, I can reveal something authentic about people in public. It is after all authenticity that most of us want when we dine out.
This blog is a way to show and tell on some of my current restaurant work as well as view a few images from the 500 + restaurants that have allowed me access.
I hope you enjoy my photo-blog. More of my work can been seen at www.manger.us
