Guiti News is a French media. Our English-language productions are therefore more sporadic. To make sure you don't miss any of the latest news and analysis on migration, don't hesitate to consult the French version.
Somewhere in the kitchen of a french restaurant, Frederico Iwakawa improves his daily specials. Today on the menu : roasted sweet potato bowl, with a couple of spices and split peas hummus. Cooking by daylight, Frederico changes hats when night comes, switching from an apron to a camera : “Cooking is my job, photography is my passion”. For this 34yo man, coming from Argentina, those two activities are complementary. “When I’m on a coverage, I’m going on an adventure, I’m meeting people, I never know what’s next or how it’ll end up. In my kitchen, even though I’m never safe from a contingency, things are more easily predictable.” After living in Morocco, Australia and Spain, Frederico found a way, in France, to live both his vocations. And our cook knows just the recipe for a well-executed photograph.
