From a coffee collision to purple asparagus seen from the perspective of an ant, each photograph in the 2020 Modernist Cuisine calendar tells a story about the foods that we eat every day.

The calendar features 18 new images by photographer and Modernist Cuisine founder Nathan Myhrvold. Inside this calendar you'll discover intriguing views of cutaway equipment, ordinary ingredients, rolling wheat fields, and even drinks that have been frozen in midair.

Myhrvold continually experiments with new photography techniques and equipment to produce magical images that portray food in fresh and unexpected ways. He utilizes research microscopes, writes custom software, designs custom cameras and rigs, and builds robots to help capture unbelievable shots of liquid in motion and levitating food.

Every image in the calendar is part of the collection of limited-edition artwork at Modernist Cuisine Gallery, with locations in Las Vegas, NV; New Orleans, LA; Seattle, WA; and La Jolla, CA. This 16-month calendar includes observed U.S. and Canadian holidays as well as a selection of food holidays to help you celebrate the beauty of food all year long.

Nathan Myhrvold is a photographer, founder of Modernist Cuisine, author of The Photography of Modernist Cuisine, and co-author of Modernist Cuisine, Modernist Cuisine at Home, Modernist Bread, and the forthcoming Modernist Pizza. He was the first chief technology officer at Microsoft and is currently the cofounder and CEO of Intellectual Ventures.
