Capt. Ivan Klugman : The Photogourmet
Born in New York and raised on Long Island. My Passion for photography became apparent at age eleven. I proceeded with photography passionately until I was sixteen when I took my first flying lesson. My photography took a back seat to my flying for many years. Now I’m a retired airline captain. I consider myself a gourmet, eating at many restaurants around the world. I also have an interest in wine and enjoy visiting the major wine regions of Italy, France and The United States.
About 18 years ago I started to combine my passions for FOOD and Photography by photographing the food and wine I consumed on vacation. When I brought these photos to be framed the gallery owner suggested I sell them to others; The Photo Gourmet was born.
I currently reside in New York NY with my lovely wife of 23 years Lori. We enjoy flying around the world eating and photographing.
