Nathan Myhrvold New Collection at Modernist Cuisine Gallery

Beer is one of the most popular drinks in the world and enjoyed year-round. Nathan Myhrvold’s home state of Washington enjoys close ties to this malty beverage because of its famous Yakima Valley, which produces over 77% of the hops grown in the United States.

Nathan Myhrvold recently visited the region to photograph hops on one of the final days of the around-the-clock harvest. The result was an all-new, hops-inspired collection now on display and for sale at his three Modernist Cuisine Gallery locations in Las Vegas, New Orleans, and Seattle – just in time for National Beer Day.

From the day-break scene of Morning After Harvest to the first-round knockout of Brew Club (oops, broke the first rule) these four distinct prints punctuate Myhrvold’s signature close-up photography techniques and proprietary process that includes custom cameras, robots, and an unrivaled scientific imagination.
