David Weber, President of the NYC Food Trucks Association (NYCFTA), and founding member of Rickshaw Dumplings, and joins THE FOOD SEEN to discuss a pressing matter. The NYPD has recently been asked to enforce a 1950’s Transportation Department regulation that states, “no vendor, hawker or huckster shall park a vehicle at a metered parking space to offer merchandise for sale from the vehicle”, effectively threatening the food truck street presence in Midtown Manhattan, as well as in all 5 boroughs. Kim Ima, owner/operator of Treats Truck, and a trailblazer of the food truck scene, calls in to discuss how this effects not only our cityscape of food, but how it compromises the integrity of many truck’s business models and tests the limits of their faithful customer base.

On today’s THE FOOD SEEN, Henry Hargreaves left his native New Zealand for “the big OE” (overseas experience) and found an unexpected job opportunity in Bangkok. A man with a camera asked him to pose, and there launched his modeling career, working on campaigns for the likes of Prada. But while on photo shoots, he realized that he actually wanted to be behind the lens. He started shooting food for restaurants, but there was a playfulness missing. He worked as a bartender at Schiller’s to support his habit, photographing gingerbread and candy constructed art galleries; licorice windows for the Guggenheim, a sugary facade for the Louvre’s glass pyramid. Rainbow colored burgers with all the fixings. An alphabet spelled out in bacon. Cakes of iconic fast food dishes lit on fire. Presidents made of Jell-O. Henry stopped waiting for work to come to him, and put his conceptual projects into action himself. A series of last meals of death row inmates called “No Seconds” went viral. He exposed what’s on many musicians “Band Riders” (e.g. Lady Gaga asks for “a small plate of cheese on ice *no smelly, no sweaty). What’s next on the plate for Henry Hargreaves? This show has been sponsored by S. Wallace Edwards & Sons. Music by takstar.

"With still life photos, I can see everything that I want in my head, and all I have to do is move objects around and play with light." [11:30]

"I never studied photography... I'm just kind of playing with food." [17:50]
