Amidst the hustle and bustle of city life, it’s sometimes essential to slow down and find joy in the simple things. I was recently reminded of this by a project from San Francisco-based food and lifestyle photographers Trinette + Chris Reed for Kinfolk magazine.
The story is inspired by two individuals that Trinette and Chris met at their local farmer’s market who own an organic fermented food business called Wild West Ferments. The two have a cabin in Point Reyes where they harvest all their own food and cook over a hearth fireplace. Trinette and Chris spent a few days cooking, chatting, hiking, photographing, and enjoying great food with friends.
Trinette produced the shoot and friend Veronica Sooley did the prop styling, with the main challenge being the thin editorial budget. However, Trinette said that this kept the shoot very real and authentic which is what they were going for visually.
Trinette and Chris were both inspired by the talent’s commitment to local organic food:
Living in a cabin in nature in Point Reyes, foraging for mushrooms in the forest, and cooking meals over an open flame, there is something very aspirational to us in that. The shoot inspired us and made us want to move farther out in the country and simplify our life.
The photos are running in Kinfolk and will be featured on Storehouse soon as well. View a video of the project here.
