Nathan Myhrvold attends a media preview Friday of the exhibition "The Photography of Modernist Cuisine" at the Pacific Science Center. He was asked to stand among these images for a portrait and he reacts to off-camera suggestions (not by the photographer) on what to do and how to stand and displays Mr. Spock's "V," which on Star Trek meant "live long and prosper." The exhibit opens next Saturday and will run through Feb. 17. Photos from left: vegetables growing in soil by Ryan Matthew Smith; a beefsteak tomato and red raspberries, both by Myhrvold. The 71-by-41-inch images are archival on aluminum. Myhrvold is also the creative force for all the images.
