Food photos for thought


Queenstown-born Aaron McLean was named best food photographer at the 2010 Le Cordon Bleu World Food Media Awards in Australia.

His winning picture Cherries with a Twist was published in Dish magazine, which entered on his behalf. “It makes me laugh to win an award,” the Auckland-based freelancer says. “I’m not working for the UN. It was a photo of four cherries in a row.”
