Pitchfork   The Dissolve   Festivals: Chicago | Paris

The life of a creative freelancer in the big city involves numerous coffeehouse meetings and knowledge of free Wi-Fi workspaces. Photographer Nathan Michael knows this existence and its territory well and focuses his Instagram account on the delicious side benefits (or hazards) of this existence: exquisite espressos, pour-overs, housemade donuts, muffins, and other high-calorie treats. He tends to shoot from an artful 90-degree angle, but sometimes loosens that up.
