On this week’s Chefs Without Restaurants podcast I have renowned photographer Aliza Eliazarov. On November 17, she has a book coming out called On the Farm: Heritage & Heralded Animal Breeds in Portraits and Stories. The book invites us to take a closer look at the animal breeds taking center stage on sustainable farms and homesteads. It’s equal parts fine art and field guide.
Passion for documenting issues surrounding food and farming has driven her work, and led to numerous projects, publications, exhibitions, and awards, most notably shooting cover stories for Modern Farmer magazine.
She has a BS in natural resources management and engineering, a master’s degree in both creative arts in education and elementary education, and is a graduate of the photo journalism and documentary photography program at the International Center of Photography.
