20 EMILY WILSON 攝影師 PHOTOGRAPHER This issue's Back Story on Wynn Las Vegas baker Flora Aghababyan was photo- graphed by Emily Wilson. A recent transplant to Las Vegas, Wilson was immediately fascinated with the work being done to revitalize the city's downtown area; she is drawn to the aura surrounding doers and dreamers, people who embody an entrepreneurial spirit. "I love shooting for Wynn magazine," says Wilson, "because those individuals featured are always at the top of their respective professions. Watching Flora work was magical. She moved and worked graceful as a dancer and balanced it all with the precision of a surgeon." Mark Ellwood wrote this issue's feature on the Tan cuisine offered at Wynn Macau Golden Flower restaurant. Ellwood writes regularly for Departures and Bloomberg Businessweek, among others. He is also a TV host and producer and regularly guests on NBC's Today Show and ABC News, commenting on lifestyle and pop culture trends. "The meal I had at Golden Flower was one of the most memorable in my life," says Ellwood. "Each morsel was bite-sized, unexpected and absolutely delicious. The painstaking attention to detail on every dish made French nouvelle cuisine seem slapdash." Todd Plummer covers fashion news, A-list soirées, and other happenings for publications including The New York Times, Women's Wear Daily, and Vogue .com. For this issue of Wynn, he examines the role global luxury brands play in promot- ing philanthropy, supporting the arts, and responding to the world's crisis areas. "There has always been a strong connec- tion between luxury and the arts," Plummer says. "But in recent years we've seen a rise in other kinds of work, such as the Cartier Charitable Foundation, which sponsors projects from helping Peruvian coffee farmers to working to increase access to healthcare in rural Senegal." Ann Wycoff is a travel and lifestyle writer whose work has appeared in San Diego Magazine, Coastal Living, and more. When she's not writing, she's exploring Baja's beaches and wine country or the mountains around Park City, Utah, where High West Distillery, the subject of her piece, "Manifest Destiny," is located. Wycoff sat down with biochemist and High West owner David Perkins to learn more about the brand's heritage, history, and distinct flavors. "High West embodies that renegade spirit," Wycoff says. "Both the whiskey and the town have great character, a sense of adventure and playfulness, and class."
