About Myriam Babin
Myriam Babin’s travel and interior photography has been published in magazines such as Vogue China, Air France Madame, L’Officiel, Architectural Digest France, and Conde Nast Traveller UK. In October of 2011, and in collaboration with her consulting company, SUPPER’D, Babin produced a New York Kitchen photography exhibit, and food event featuring food by Market Table, Txikito, Gramercy Tavern, El Quinto Pino and SUPPER’D. Photographs and donated dinners were sold at a silent auction to raise money for SHARE OUR STRENGTH. In 2010, she exhibited work from a trip to the Arctic circle at the Heskin Contemporary gallery in New York City. Examples of this work can be seen on her website, and catalogues from the show can be purchased here.
About New York Kitchen
Combining her photography and her personal interest in culinary culture, Babin created New York Kitchen, a blog documenting the behind the scenes of New York City restaurants.
In her photographs, Babin aims to capture the grit and the glamour of New York city kitchens. There are often constraints to having a kitchen in the city: space limitations, challenging architecture, and high rents, all of which make for creative use of space and interesting images. Another one of Babin’s goals is to show the energy one finds in a busy kitchen: the intense pace, the heat, sweat and burns combined with the finesse and attention to detail that goes into creating beautiful food. Babin also enjoys finding the quirky still lives that make each space unique.
