Jim Denevan is a man with many talents, he’s a chef, a surfer, and an artist. He is the founder and organizer of Outstanding in the Field, an ambitious attempt to reconnect diners to the land and the origins of their food, and to honor the local farmers and food artisans who cultivate it.
Jim creates these mathematically astounding sand illustrations with natural materials and a lot of time. Although temporary, each creation is captured through aerial photography, capturing not only the marks made in the sand, but the landscape they cohere with. More of Jim’s work can be found on his website, here.
