The story of food extends far beyond the confines of a plate — it touches at the heart of the human experience. At its origin, food connects us to our earth and to our past. It informs our understanding of the world and drives our passions. Aside from sex, food is the most powerful and critical element of human existence. It has the power to build communities, unite nations, and strengthen familial bonds. It can restore the body, nourish the soul, and — when farmed responsibly  heal the earth.

At Kelly Allison Photography, we are passionate about telling the story of food . . . from seed to indulgence. Kelly is available for commercial and editorial assignments in Chicago and beyond.
