These images are from a collaborative campaign with the Farmers Market Association of New Mexico. This project was a joy, in that we transcended the typical images for farm-to-table produce, and adopted a fashion-forward approach to celebrating the color and form of fresh produce.
Gabriella Marks is a San Franciscan expat and music shooter turned chef-and-farmer groupie. She arrived in New Mexico on pure intuition, but knows why she stays: the spectacular high desert light, the lenticular clouds, and the humbling experience of urging a single squash plant from the dry clay soil and ancient pueblo pottery shards in the garden. Her respect for, and relationships with, the farmers and chefs in the region grows daily.
