photography by Mikkel Vang and Romulo Yanes

For every story I art direct, I look for inspiration for emotion, color, light, and setting. I am working on a story for our Jan/Feb 09 issue, and above is the inspiration I pulled to show to the stylist, as well as the photographer. These images came from Gourmet.

I like the cozy, intimate style of these settings. You can tell that people are present, yet no people are shown. I also love the painterly quality of these images, Gourmet's photography always tends to have a dreamy/magical quality to it.
