Food in the Field – Africa

November 23, 2008  |  Documentary Photography & Films

I often find interesting links on and this one struck a chord in me as I am sure it does with any photojournalist – photographers talking about food they have had in the field.

I have definitely had my share of interesting foods while photographing but one time in Africa the family asked me to cook for them. I had been photographing this family for a couple of days and they asked me to join them for dinner one night not knowing I would be the cook.

After remembering this, I went back to my photos from that time and found these that one of their children had taken of me cooking their traditional dishes.

I recently posted images from my time in Zambia on my website. Check them out here.
