Eater "On The Road" Feature

Eater asked five writers to drive across the country and reflect on the food, surroundings and circumstances that brought them there. In turn, Nicole Licht and I created 5 photographic illustrations that serve as visual postcards, incorporating souvenirs (and of course, food) from each story.

The brilliant essays by John Birdsall, Gustavo Arellano, Rachel Khong, Bijan Stephen and Rahawa Haile documenting their road trip and culinary journey can be found on Eater's website.
