Food, in it’s most basic purpose provides the fundamentals of existence. The act of eating, and what one eats, is based upon many societal implications including location, resources, and access. For centuries, food has helped distinguish cultures and, on occasion, been the source of rituals. Photography has the ability to transform our vision of food graphically, politically, and culturally.
