Dan Perez: The MOMO Book

Dec 19, 2014
Photographer Spotlight

Tel Aviv-based photographer Dan Perez recently photographed a coffee table book for MOMO, a famous Asian restaurant located in Amsterdam.

Dan was commissioned by MOMO’s creative staff to document all of the amazing ingredients that the chef uses on a daily basis. The project even included a fishing trip up the North Sea.

Not only does the book cover the food that MOMO is known for, it also has a lifestyle feel, with the different aspects of such a busy restaurant, including the people, the service, the kitchen and more.

Dan and his crew shot the whole book in just eight days, working from early morning until late at night.

The book was launched back in March, with an exhibition taking place at MOMO restaurant. Here are a few photos from the launch:
