Whether he’s shooting restaurant reviews for Eater and The New York Times, or giving lectures on the art of Instagram photography, Daniel Krieger is a force to be reckoned with when it comes to bringing to food scene to life. This year, he’s been as active as ever, hauling his camera—and trusty iPhone—to exotic locales like Turkey, Rome, and Marfa, TX, while documenting all of New York’s most buzzed-about restaurants and chefs.

As is tradition, we asked him to share some of his favorite photos with us to close out the year. Click through the gallery above for a rundown of Krieger’s best food shots of 2014, and don’t forget to follow him on Instagram—the man is a true master.
