Photographing Urban Forager Lady Danni Morinich for Grid Magazine

Grid Magazine, a publication focused on sustainability culture in Philadelphia, recently commissioned me to photograph Lady Danni Morinich, an herbalist and forager, for a story on urban foraging in their December 2023 issue. Lady Danni leads foraging trips to different urban locations within Philadelphia, with the goal of educating participants on wild edibles available in their own communities.

I joined her as she led a foraging trip to FDR Park, a 350 acre park in South Philadelphia. I made portraits of Danni to support the story, as well as images of the tour itself. A wider selection of images can be viewed on my Photoshelter archive site.
