Everything We Are

Lebanon

Food is everything we are.
It’s an extension of national feeling,
ethnic feeling, your personal history, your province, your region,
your tribe, your grandma.
It’s inseparable from those from the get-go.
– Anthony Bourdain

If more of us valued food and cheer and song
above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world.

and eat with him…

  1. hoy 19 agosto dia internacional de la fotografia y tambien de la asistencia humanitaria… quiero mostrarle a Steve un saludo por ser un fotografo que mezcla la fotografia y la humanidad de forma tan hermosamente sensible y fuerte a la vez….FELIZ DIA

  2. Arresting pictures, as usual, Steve. That photo of Vesuvio Bakery caught my attention, not just because it’s across the street from my place, but also it features Mr. Dapolito, who used to be a mayor of sorts of this neighborhood. Since he’s passed away, they renamed a nearby park Vesuvio, with a mention about him, and the city’s Clarkson Street recreation and pool center is also named after him. Cheers

  3. Magnificent pictures (should i say as always!) and the quotes are perfectly chosen (as always too) For me you really are a “master” , perfectly showing humankind, showing the details of real life. “Human being” is the subject and about each picture one can imagine a story. That is the purpose of photography for me. Thank you for sharing with us all the diversity of your work. Thanks!

  4. As always, a beautiful set of photos of food and people from around the world. Thank you Stevebhai
