Herbae Culinariae

Herbae Culinariae takes advantage of how the foodie culture momentum is changing our current perception about herbs. Professional chefs and ordinary culinary aficionados enjoy experimenting with their flavors and aromas, but most forget that many of these plants were commonly used as medicines not too long ago. In this series, widely used culinary herbs were photographed in a style reminiscent of the mid-19th century, when few synthetic drugs were readily available, and people used these plants for more than seasoning food.
