Special Event

Feast for the Eyes: On Food Photography with Denise Wolff + Food Photography/Styling Demo with Farrah Skeiky

Saturday, November 18

1:30 pm - 2:30 pm

Mexican Cultural Institute 2829 16th Street Northwest Washington, DC,

“Photographs of food are rarely just about food. They hold our lives and time up to the light. Food can signify a lifestyle or a nation, hope or despair, hunger or excess. Ultimately, food is not only about literal taste, but also Taste with a capital T—both the lifestyles we aspire to and the building blocks of culture itself.” —Susan Bright

Join Aperture at Foto DC for a special event with Aperture senior editor Denise Wolff featuring an afternoon of show-and-tell and discussion about the rich history of food in photographs from Feast for the Eyes: The Story of Food in Photography by Susan Bright. Photographers, through a range of expressions, have depicted this most common of subjects, and the resulting works—from the hilarious to the devastating—hold our lives and times up to the light, forming the building blocks of culture and reflecting how we see ourselves.

Afterwards, photographers are invited to a Pineapple Collaborative food styling and shoot demo on site, with Farrah Skeiky of Dim Sum Media, courtesy of Whole Foods.

Feast for the Eyes will be on sale, alongside additional Aperture publications as part of a one-day Aperture Bookstore Pop-Up at FotoWeekCentral.
