East Coast Food Stories is a collection of visual and written stories that celebrate the way food connects us to our surroundings and each other. Inspired by the seaside lifestyle and the memories we make while gathered at the table, Michelle Doucette documents food culture in celebration of the traditions and innovations of people who are passionate about food.
I’m Michelle, a portrait, food and lifestyle photographer from Halifax, Nova Scotia.
My inspiration comes from our province’s unique seaside lifestyle and the memories we make while gathered at the table. Through my work, I celebrate the traditions and innovations of local people who are passionate about food, and explore how this connects us to our landscape and each other.
Laura MacLeod, owner of The Old Apothecary, is the creative force behind the colourful bakery and cafe located on Barrington Street in downtown Halifax. TOA is filled with delicious croissants, pastries and breads made from scratch on-site, with mostly locally-sourced ingredients. The historic building was once a pharmacy in the early 1900’s inspiring the unique name of this local business.
Where do I go, who do I meet, and most importantly – what do I get to eat? Check out my portfolio for a sampling of the foods and faces that inspire me everyday.
