Everything That Lives, Eats
"The Universe is nothing without the things that live in it, and everything that lives, eats" wrote Jean-Anthelme Brillat-Savarin in the preamble to his 1825 Physiology of Taste, or Meditations on Transcendental Gastronomy. Brillat-Savarin suggested that the forgotten tenth Muse was Gasterea, who presided over all the pleasures of taste. The feast of superb imagery related to both eating and the edible certainly attests to the possibility of such inspiration. And so inspired, for the first time Aperture serves up food . . . for thought.
Everything That Lives, Eats presents food, celebrating its myriad manifestations through that ultimate preservative: photography.
