I have photographed the food section of the local weekly, The Weekly Alibi, for a couple of years now. It's been a good, consistent way for me to experiment with food photography and hone an approach to it. Lately I've been trying to broaden my reach to include more of the people behind the food -- as much for my own sanity as anything. With that in mind, I twisted executive chef Rashpaul Sandhu's arm for a few photos. He even got a line cook to stoke some flames on the line for a shot. The food here is surprisingly complex and fresh, despite the 'express' approach of the restaurant. I won't be putting every installment of my Alibi assignments up on the blog, but if I do, consider it a recommendation!
