A frequent contributor to LEGENDS, Peter Frank Edwards’s photography also appears in Garden & Gun, Bon Appétit, Coastal Living, and Travel + Leisure. When not on assignment, he enjoys cooking, tinkering with vintage audio, and being outdoors. A tour through the latest food that Sean Brock is cooking or growing or curing is always amazing—food in jars, hanging on hooks, in coolers. It was an honor to photograph the chef’s first cookbook, Heritage, and we’re working on a second book this year.

She’s a contributing editor to Charleston and Maine magazines and a producer with Peter Frank Edwards Photographs, and she publishes new work online at tinysuitcase.com. Away from her desk, she gets a kick out of growing zinnias and sunflowers, making pasta, and swimming in saltwater.

I have always felt that golf’s curious vernacular befit its mysterious nature, and poking around at the meanings behind the idioms was like listening to an old caddy tell stories in the pub—a lot of fun.
