☕️ Modernist Cuisine Gallery Debuts Nathan Myhrvold’s Coffee Collection Ahead of National Coffee Day

. . . But First, Coffee.

7 ENERGIZING IMAGES FROM NATHAN MYHRVOLD GUARANTEED TO STIMULATE THE EYE

Commemorating National Coffee Day on 9/29,
Modernist Cuisine Gallery Debuts Myhrvold’s Highly Anticipated Coffee Collection

 

Fall is in the air; and with custom camera rigs, robots, and a disruptive process at his disposal, so are a few of these NEW coffee shots from world-renowned food photographer Nathan Myhrvold. Just in time for National Coffee Day, the highly anticipated coffee collection is now available at Modernist Cuisine Gallery.

Coming on the heels of Myhrvold’s recent announcement to open two more galleries in Seattle, WA and La Jolla, CA in the fall, this new collection adds to the 90+ food-focused images now on display and for sale at Modernist Cuisine Gallery located on Royal Street in New Orleans and inside The Forum Shops at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas.
Equal parts hypnotic, tranquil, and energizing this collection pays homage to America’s favorite daytime beverage while instantly revealing the innovative photography techniques deployed by Myhrvold to capture these invigorating images.

Introducing a septuple shot of joe guaranteed to stimulate the eye.

MORNING CLOUDS

Cutting a coffee cup in half provides a hypnotizing view of the swirling Milky Way that forms with the addition of cream to coffee. This dramatic cutaway shot was taken with the help of a custom-built robot that was rigged to slowly pour cream into coffee so that Nathan could pinpoint the perfect moment to photograph the striking collision.

TIGER STRIPES
These “tiger stripes,” seen emerging from a bottomless portafilter, are one of the visual cues baristas rely on to help pull the perfect espresso shot. The golden bands form after about eight seconds, once the initially hesitant dark-brown trickles of coffee become a single stream and lighten in color.

MAGIC DRIPS
A steadied moment of anticipation and then relief as the first dewdrops of espresso begin to fall. Eventually viscosity and surface tension will cause the droplets to merge into a single stream of coffee.

CREMA
A tranquil moment of appreciation for crema, the coveted blanket of golden, aromatic foam on the surface of espresso–one of life’s simple pleasures.

LATTE LOVE

A perfect swirl of snowy foam, mahogany espresso, and heartfelt pareidolia. An expertly brewed shot of espresso with carefully steamed milk is a thing of beauty in and of itself.

LET’S MEET FOR COFFEE

It’s easy to get lost in the incredible details of the latte art in this image, like the heart-shaped ring of bubbles that formed in the crema, as well as the sharp contrast of dark espresso against the imperceptibly fine froth of steamed milk.

A SHOT OF CREAM

If you want to stage a daring coffee-shop cannonball act, you might want the help of a balloon pendulum robot. Nathan used the custom-built robot, equipped with metal arms for hurling liquid-filled balloons, to help create and perfectly capture the coffee and cream collision in this shot.

About Nathan Myhrvold

Nathan Myhrvold is founder of The Cooking Lab and lead author and photographer of Modernist Cuisine: The Art and Science of Cooking, Modernist Cuisine at Home, The Photography of Modernist Cuisine, Modernist Bread, and the forthcoming Modernist Pizza. He routinely pushes the boundaries of culinary science as a chef, photographer, scientist, and writer. He has had a passion for food and photography since he was a boy. At a young age he consumed cooking books and invested in new cameras and lenses—even while doing postdoctoral cosmology work with Stephen Hawking. While working as the chief technology officer of Microsoft, he took a leave of absence to earn his culinary diploma from École de Cuisine La Varenne in France. Myhrvold retired from Microsoft in 1999 to found Intellectual Ventures and pursue several interests, including photography, cooking, and food science. Inspired by the void in literature about culinary science and the cutting-edge techniques used in the world’s best restaurants, Myhrvold assembled the Modernist Cuisine team to share the art and science of cooking with others, hoping to pass on his own curiosity and passion for the movement.

Modernist Cuisine Gallery Releases 20 New Images From Nathan Myhrvold Just In Time For National Photography Month

MODERNIST CUISINE GALLERY RELEASES 20 NEW PHOTOGRAPHIC IMAGES FROM NATHAN MYHRVOLD EXCLUSIVELY ON SALE AT LAS VEGAS AND NEW ORLEANS GALLERIES

Edible Rainbow
New Image Debut Coincides with National Photography Month in May
 For the past 200 years, the invention of the camera has provided the amazing opportunity for everyone from amateurs to experts to forever capture a moment in time. While subject matter runs the gamut including modern day #selfies to panoramic landscapes and more, one of the most popular things to photograph today is food.  Lucky for us, photographer, chef, scientist, and author Nathan Myhrvold has taken the joy of photographing food to a new level via his use of technology, science, and the literal creation of new cameras and photographic techniques.  With his first two galleries now open in Las Vegas and New Orleans, Myhrvold is excited to debut 20 spectacular images that are available exclusively at his Modernist Cuisine Gallery locations.
Released in conjunction with National Photography Month, these NEW compelling food images are personally curated from Nathan’s highly customized process and otherworldly technology. 
SOME of the new images include:
NEOPOLITAN MAN     
  • In honor of the recently announced upcoming Modernist Pizza cookbook, Nathan was inspired by Italian painter Arcimboldo’s portraits. He used food to compose his subjects. For this, Nathan only used pizza ingredients to create and photograph this Neapolitan man.
UNDERGROUND EMBRACE
  • Carrots grow in the soil. Plant roots can turn and twist to avoid other obstacles. In this case, the obstacle was each other.
TOMAHAWK 
  • The Tomahawk Steak is an on-the bone Rib Steak, cut from the fore-rib with the entire rib bone left. The long bone is French-trimmed, leaving an amazing presentation.
VICIA FABIA   
  • The Latin name for the fava bean. Widely consumed but in many different ways. In the Middle East the beans are grown until they’re fully mature then dried, called broad bean or fool. The French eat them when they’re younger and still green. Jack and the Beanstalk and the movie Silence of the Lambs both reference this bean.
LIMELIGHT   
  • When sliced thin, limes are translucent. This shot was both back and front lit.
