While you are waiting...
is a small coffee table book with travel impressions and behind the photographs comments by Award Winning Travel Photographer Felix Hug (1st Prize winner at the Travel Photographer of The Year Awards 2008, Image of the Year Awards 2008 (AMERICAN PHOTO) & The New York Photography Award Winner for Best Editorial Image of The Year 2009)
The book will be available to browse through between and after meals at Spruce Restaurant in Singapore .
Travis, the restaurant owner and Felix are friends and say about this project:
"The art of presenting exceptional cuisine in the most inspired of settings was, and is, the driving force behind the creation of Spruce.
A great restaurant is equal to the sum of its parts. All of the details matter: from making
sure the flowers are just right to cooking the perfect steak.
When I first met Felix, I was struck by his energy and enthusiasm. In photography, as in food, the end product is a reflection of its creator, and his pictures are not only visually engaging but they also initiate a sense of contextuality to our lives.
This collection of unique images reflects the essence of our surroundings, but it also showcases a gifted photographer’s eye for all that is Asia. "
owner, spruce restaurant
"I have always enjoyed great food, but there is one thing I love even more: people who are passionate about their calling and who live their dreams pursuing it. People like Travis.
So I knew I was onto something good when Travis approached me and asked if I would be interested in hanging some of my works at his new restaurant.
I could have not wished for a better gallery space than in the relaxed atmosphere of Spruce: art should be surrounded by good people enjoying the moment.
As you sample Spruce’s fine cuisine, I hope you get a taste of the colourful and diverse experience that is travel in Asia. With luck, these images will inspire you to pack your bags and explore the region for yourself. "
