SUSHI SHOKUNIN by Andrea Fazzari

Andrea Fazzari is a James Beard Award-winning photographer, author, writer, chef whisperer, designer and soon-to-be podcast host, specializing in travel and the culinary world. Tokyo, Japan - a city of endless fascination and extraordinary culture - is her home.

Andrea's newest solo Japanese food culture book SUSHI SHOKUNIN: Japan's Culinary Masters was released on September 24th 2020, and is published by Assouline. Andrea wrote, photographed and co-designed this striking silk-bound monograph, the first of its kind. Read more about it here, as seen in VOGUE and Esquire.


Her previous book, James Beard Award winner Tokyo New Wave: 31 Chefs Defining Japan’s Next Generation (2018), is Andrea's love letter to this city's distinct and electrifying gastronomic world. It includes 435 photographs, 31 essays and interviews. Collaborating regularly with Japan's many esteemed chefs and shokunin (artisans) has afforded Andrea a more profound understanding of Japan, knowledge she shares constantly and with great passion . Listen to her insightful interviews on the podcast Japan Eats to understand more.

Andrea Fazzari is Starwood Hotel Group’s first Luxury Collection Global Explorer. Her photographs, journal entries and audio narrations describing her travels on six continents were featured in the Luxury Collection Destination Guides (Assouline). She is also a tastemaker in Hotel Stories (Assouline), a travel book showcasing unique luxury properties, and the photographer and stylist of Aperitivo (Rizzoli), shot on location throughout Italy. Fazzari is the featured photographer of the book Bvlgari Il Ristorante (Assouline) made in conjunction with Bvlgari Japan.

Fazzari is the winner of the Lowell Thomas Gold Travel Photography Award for her work in Argentina for Departures Magazine. She has photographed campaigns and projects for such companies as Cathay Pacific Airlines and Four Seasons Hotels, and magazines such as Travel + Leisure, Vanity Fair, Architectural Digest and Departures. Four Magazine and Talkies Magazine have profiled Fazzari and her work, and Photo District News featured her as one of the year's best cookbook photographers in PDN's Food Issue for 2017. She has written articles including An Obssesive's Ode to Onigiri! For more press, check this page.

Photography was a hobby until PDN (Photo District News) named Fazzari one of "30 Photographers to Watch” in 2004. Before becoming a photographer, she had been working in fashion and film public relations for Giorgio Armani, Dolce & Gabbana, and Miramax Films. She has explored over ninety countries, and has lived – on her own – in seven. Fazzari is originally from Manhattan, and has previously lived in Italy, France, Hong Kong, Thailand, Spain, and Korea.
