Welcome to the new blog and my newest project! I am the photographer of Abigail Thompson Photography for those of you who are coming across this site from there.
For those of you who have been following my work for a while you may have picked up on the fact that I always seem to want some sort of challenge to take part in. I have previously done a 52 week project (one self-portrait every week), and three 365 projects (one photograph a day for a year). It has been a while since my last project and I was craving something more structured to work on this summer. On top of that I have been wanting to try out a bunch of different recipes, which has led me to this. And so, after talking with Kari, my older sister, we have decided to embark on a recipe challenge for the summer (or longer). Each week we will choose an ingredient and will both find/create a recipe based around it. As often as possible we will choose something that we can find at our local farmers market (for her in Minneapolis, and for me in Manhattan, Kansas). Then we will each post our recipes and photographs of the dish here to share with you all.
We still have some things to figure out logistically, so please bear with us as we work out the kinks. Things will probably be shifting around and changing quite a bit over the next few weeks we go. Hopefully you all enjoy, and maybe even feel inspired to try out your own challenge!
