Recently I reacquainted myself with Matt Freedman Photography. He’s been working with Chef Tiberio Simone, originally from Italy, now based in Seattle, on a project that marries food and photography, two of my greatest loves.

Freedman has done extensive work on The Burning Man project, and photographs many subjects. Chef Simone is based in Seattle, and is a James Beard Award Winner. The combining of these two talents has resulted in the book titled La Figa: Visions of food and form, due out sometime this year. They will be showing and performing in the Seattle Erotic Art Festival, May 1st-3d. That’s this coming weekend.

If you miss the performance, wait for the book to come out, it promises to satisfy any foodie or professional’s interest in food as erotic art.
