Kelsey McClellan

Today we’re honored to share a collection of images created by Kelsey McClellan in collaboration with Michelle Maguire. The two have worked on numerous projects including a  cook book for Jeni Britton Bauer. Kelsey McClellan is a photographer based in San Francisco, CA. Raised in the suburbs of Columbus, Ohio, her work explores the humor and calmness of everyday objects. Michelle Maguire is a librarian in a university art history department, and a photographer and prop/set stylist in Columbus, Ohio.  Bon Appetit!

Wardrobe Snacks

This series was inspired by diners lacking the luxury of being seated at a table: my stepdad who rests his sandwich on his thigh in between bites (hell with a plate!) while he blasts an action movie on his TV; a commuter cramped up on a crowded bus retrieving an item from a bag or pocket; a lunch-breaker on a park bench eating from her lap. They’re informal — perhaps even a bit awkward — spaces as far as eating is concerned, yet the diner always appears to be comfortable and perfectly satisfied with their chosen snack, almost zen-like.

Pancakes is Ready is an ongoing series we began in 2015 with the idea of creating table environments that we wanted to be a part of; making a place where we just really wanna pull up a seat and dig in.
