My good friend Natalie (read: best friends since we were two years old), Partner and Director of Horticulture at Love and Carrots, asked me to capture their installation of the rooftop garden at one of DC’s newest boutique hotels Eaton. The produce grown on the hotel’s rooftop will be prepared and served fresh in dishes at American Son, the modern-day American cuisine restaurant in the lobby of Eaton. This is urban farming at it’s finest in our city.
If you drop by Eaton you will notice that every room from lobby to rooftop is a green oasis. Love and Carrots designed the layout of all the plants for the beautiful interiors. I had the opportunity to spend a few quiet moments capturing these spaces and the rooftop lounge and bar, Wild Days, quickly jumped to the top of my list of favorite spaces to visit in DC. It’s a breath of fresh air as soon as you walk in.
