Elemental’s Tractor

Elemental features re-envisioned Southern Cuisine and handcrafted beverages made with local, regional, and responsibly sourced ingredients and inspired by modern techniques.

In the months leading up to their opening, Elemental Restaurant acquired an antique tractor from a local family farm. Today it sits as a centerpiece in the restaurant, but before moving it away from the farm, they asked me to create a set of “portraits” of the tractor in its original home. I moved it from place to place on the farm, looking for just the right light to hit it. The portfolio we created not only tells the story of the tractor, it also tells Elemental’s “farm to table” story in the most literal way possible.
