EAT ME: The Tasty Art of Food Photography

Published by under Photo Contests

DEADLINE NOVEMBER 02, 2011

Food has been glorified and demonized, deified and sanitized, but through it all food gets photographed — a lot! Second only to the female form as a favorite subject, food remains our constant companion and a sensory, perhaps even sensual, sidekick to our collective photographic psyche. From the fine art photos of Edward Weston’s peppers and the frozen food portraits of Irving Penn, to the repressed sexuality of beer, spirits and soft drink photography in advertising, to the ubiquitous “serving suggestion” images of industrial product photography, or even the “eat me now” snapshots of food bloggers and Facebook, culinary photography surrounds us both literally and figuratively, and is, we feel, ripe for artistic exploration.
