Introducing the Modernist Cuisine Gallery, where the groundbreaking works of photographer, chef, scientist, and author Nathan Myrhvold transports beholders to the intersection of fine art, food photography, and science. Located at The Forum Shops at Caesars Palace, the gallery sells limited-edition prints of food photography taken by Myhrvold and found in the books he has authored: Modernist Cuisine: The Art and Science, Modernist Cuisine at Home, The Photography of Modernist Cuisine, and the forthcoming Modernist Bread, on sale fall 2017.
Wine glasses dancing in a tempest of red, raspberries plunging through pristine water, an unsuspecting group of french fries in the path of a suspended blast of ketchup… just a small taste of sights and scenes on display from the lens of Myrhvold and the culinary lab of Modernist Cuisine. Each print is produced using the highest quality and most durable print methods available, and the opening collection debuts stunning new photos and iconic images from the books. The prints will be available in several frame, media, and size options—including large-scale options for big spaces – available for shipping worldwide.
Almost immediately after publishing the first book, prints of the photos were in demand. As the porfolio expanded with subsequent books, the idea of the Modernist Cuisine Gallery took form, and Myhrvold appealed to Las Vegas for both its culinary and retail clout. As he muses, “where else can you find 10-foot-tall portraits of top chefs emblazoned on towering hotels, or a such a vast collective of enterprising artists who have created a vision of how to exhibit their art?”
