I've been working with a wonderful non-profit organization called Vanguard Culture that promotes collaboration of various artistic industries since June of 2017 . During the duration of this partnership I have been asked to document some amazing events, but my favorite are the quarterly "An Artist @ The Table" series. Each dinner is located in a beautiful home where the owners have opened up their space to us to use as a platform for the dining experience. We bring in amazing Chefs to prepare the meals and each dinner features an Artist for the guests to converse with while they dine.
This particular dinner featured an artist named Shinpei Takeda, who does incredible installation and documentary work. The Chef we brought in for this one is named Jason Fullilove who recently opened up his own restaurant in Los Angeles called Barbara Jean LA.
