amsterdam: todd selby

having masterfully documented the often quirky dwellings and lifestyles of many indie  and cult a-listers, todd selby has become a celeb in his own right. the new york-based photographer comes to amsterdam on thu - nov 1 [7pm] to sign his new book. dubbed edible selby, the 296-page publication features a slightly different focus. selby has now focused his lens on the kitchens, gardens, homes, and restaurants of more than 40 of the most creative and dynamic figures working in today's culinary world. from behind the scenes shots with top chef rené redzepi at noma in copenhagen, and photos of tokyo-based pizza maker susumu kakinuma to images of a hilltop inn without an innkeeper at valdobbiadene. each profile is accompanied by watercolour illustrations and a handwritten questionnaire, which includes a signature recipe. reveling in the pleasures of a taco at the beach, foraging for wild herbs, and the art of the perfectly cured olive, Selby captures the food we love to eat and the people who passionately grow, cook, pour, and serve these incredible edibles every day. don't miss! location: american book center, spui 12 [centrum].
