reblog for easter
This is a food and lifestyle story we did for Kinfolk Magazinewith our friends who live in Point Reyes and who own the fermented food company Wild West Ferments. They really do cook meals over the hearth fireplace in the living room of their cabin. It was a wonderful day photographing them mushroom foraging and cooking a beautiful meal.

Brie Fainblit is an L.A. County high school senior who set out to make her own prom dress from scratch because her family couldn’t afford to buy one. Her material of choice is soda-can tabs, which she crocheted into a one-of-a-kind dress, along with a matching clutch and choker for herself and a vest and belt for her boyfriend James. Here they are on their way to the dance:— LA Times City Beat (@LATimescitybeat)April 12, 2014
Brie’s project was the subject of an installment in Times reporter Nita Lelyveld’s wonderful City Beat series. Readers of the story generously donated prom shoes, jewelry, cufflinks for James, limo service for the couple and more. The day after the prom, James asked Lelyveld to pass a message along to readers who had offered help: “Please let them know how incredibly grateful we are. We are not prideful people, but they have made us feel so good.”
