writing and photography // Battle Wounds in the Kitchen

Here's a link to the published story on heavytable.com.

Sitting at the counter near the open kitchen in one of my favorite Minneapolis restaurants, I had an idea that I pitched to the Heavy Table: a photo essay that takes an unflinching look at the physical toll of professional kitchen work. The conversations I had with these chefs began with gory war stories, but evolved into a much deeper conversation about the odd intimacy of cooking for strangers, the long-term health impacts of food service work, and more.
