About the Book
This body of work is an exploration of the culture surrounding Midwestern sustenance with an appreciation for all of the hard work and creative thought behind it. This book is the first part of an ongoing project that will involve traveling the country in search of cultural distinction. For this first body of work, I have focused on Northeast Ohio restaurants and shops that I feel represent the ideology of the Midwest. As I shoot, I live out the experience as it was intended with awareness for the atmosphere, the food, and the thought behind it all.
