Feast for the EyesThe story of food in photography

Food as an outward expression
of our pleasures and our principles

 

 

Food has been a constant subject matter throughout photography’s history, ranging across genres from art to advertising. From basic sustenance to savory repasts, food awakens the senses and touches both private and public life. Presented by Aperture Foundation, Feast for the Eyes is the first book to survey this rich and complex history of food in pictures.
Bringing together over 300 images, curator and writer Susan Bright explores the important figures and movements of food photography with illuminating commentary, covering images from the earliest photographers to contemporary artists such as Roger Fenton, Nickolas Muray, Man Ray, Edward Weston, Irving Penn, Stephen Shore, Cindy Sherman, Wolfgang Tillmans, Nobuyoshi Araki, Martin Parr, and many more
