FARMACIE 4.0 | The Eye Behind The Lens - Alison Page

We can't help but look back on past dinners and swoon over memories made. And, our swoon-ing wouldn't be half as fun if we didn't have the amazing eye of some of Vancouver's most talented snap=happy photography pros bringing their skills to each dinner. 

We're thrilled to have the lovely Alison Page shooting our 4.0 dinner - and wanted to give you a chance to get to know her before the dinner comes to life through her lens.

Name: Alison Page

My biz: I'm a freelance photographer who grew up on the Prairies, but the ocean was always calling my name.  I finally made the move West for graduate school, my background and education is in Marine Biology, but my academic studies never fulfilled my creative passion for the natural world.  I love to shoot anything from food, beer, friends to the natural world and Vancouver is the perfect playground for me!

What drew you to the Farmacie 4.0 dinner? I first met Britney [Gill - co-founder of FARMACIE] at the 1st instalment of Kinfolk Dinners held at West Elm Market Granville hosted by Victory Gardens celebrating the release of "The Kinfolk Table" Cookbook.  Thankfully, I sat right next to Britney and that was the beginning! I was fortunate enough to attend 2.0, feasted in the beautiful summer sun and donated some photos for 3.0 and I am excited to see what is in store for 4.0!! I've met and connected with so many lovely local creatives through these dinners, I can't wait to see who I meet the next event!

My work nourishes connections by sharing images and stories of how food is lovingly grown, collected, prepared, shared and enjoyed!  From the gardens, kitchens and dishes themselves to the photos of the growers and chefs themselves, it inspires me to keep meeting and eating local!

Drop a hint: what do you have in store for the guests at Farmacie 4.0? I hope I can capture you all enjoying a plate of amazing food, laughing with friends, new and old!  My favourite part of being a photographer is capturing someone's reaction to amazing food and making memories at the table.
