The Year in Centerfolds: 2021

For each issue of culture, we choose a noteworthy and especially good-looking cheese, and then style and photograph it to capture its distinctive beauty. As we wrap up the year, were inspired to look back on the centerfolds of 2021, with gratitude once again for the creativity and skill of the cheesemakers, photographers, and stylists who made these images possible.
