Mumbai, New York, Scranton

Tamara Shopsin Darabzine

Mumbai, New York, Scranton is a peer inside the ailing but relentlessly working brain of a graphic designer, illustrator, and short-order cook, who travels to India with her husband Jason, and dwells in New York and Scranton.

The book is a visual survey that documents observations and idiosyncratic meditations that take place over objects, food, and other miscellanies. More than a memoir, the work is a stirring account of moments Tamara Shopsin spends in sickness, voyage, and sustenance. Most strikingly, it is a recollection and affirmation of a romantic creative process. Shopsin’s professional and personal dynamic with her photographer husband is especially inspiring and heartfelt.

Tamara is the daughter of the quirky Kenny Shopsin, who runs the New York dining landmark that is Shopsin’s.
