High End Cuisine and High End Hasselblad Cameras Unite for a Scandinavian Victory

16/03/2011 Hasselblad photographer Jeff Nalin captures official portraits of the three Scandinavian winners of the world-renowned Bocuse d’Or culinary „Olympics“ in Lyon, France.
Passion and creativity - two staples for gastronomy and photography - were in abundance at the 2011 Bocuse d'Or in Lyon, France this past January. Founded more than 20 years ago as an international stepping stone for talented young chefs, the Bocuse d'Or is named after its creator, renowned French chef and pioneer of modern French cuisine, Paul Bocuse.

For the first time, Hasselblad participated in this prestigious event with an on-site studio where chefs de cuisine photographer Jeff Nalin used a Hasselblad H4D-40 camera to capture official portraits of the three winners. Uwe Moebus, Managing Director, Hasselblad France and Hasselblad Germany remarked that "Hasselblad is proud to be an official supplier of the Bocuse d'Or 2011. We enjoyed working with our Lyon area partner Carré Couleur and Jeff Nalin, one of the most respected photographers of the high end culinary scene. We are honored that Nalin, who has made portraits of the most famous chefs de cuisine for his book, 'Scenes deux Chefs', uses a Hasselblad camera to capture his exceptional images." The cooperation between Bocuse d'Or, Hasselblad and Nalin will continue in the future, as the photographer will capture portraits at national and continental events.
