We’re delighted to share that Lynn Karlin has won the Garden Writers Association’s Silver Award of Achievement for the Simply Raw 2013 wall calendar in the Photography—Calendar category. The full announcement will appear on the GWA website in May, but we’re so excited we couldn’t wait to tell you the news. The calendar will be displayed at the GWA Annual Symposium and Awards Banquet in Quebec City, Canada, on August 19.
Photographer Lynn Karlin’s portraits honor farm-fresh vegetables, fruits and mushrooms by literally placing them on a pedestal and capturing their simple beauty. Lynn is an internationally published photographer for garden and lifestyle magazines. She began photographing “The Pedestal Series” after bringing home an amazingly beautiful purple cauliflower from the Belfast Farmers‘ Market to her studio and placing it on an old white pedestal near an east-facing window. Now, dozens of pedestals later, she exhibits her beautiful photographs in galleries and stores nationwide. This body of work shines a spotlight on the obvious but often overlooked beauty of the harvest.
In our calendar, these gorgeous images are paired with delicious, accessible recipes by well-known master raw food chef and best-selling “cookbook” author Matthew Kenney. As a classically trained chef who developed a distinct Raw-Foods lifestyle brand, Matthew frequently lectures at food and philanthropy events around the globe. Along with operating his licensed raw food culinary academies and restaurants, he is involved in raw food projects around the world and travels extensively to forward his mission to show others that food can be delicious and vibrant while healthful.
