Food Photographs

Food is often a problem for photojournalists when travelling or living in foreign countries and meals are often memorable for various reasons. On the The New Yorker magazine site you can watch ‘Tea and Wallaby” in which photographers Brent Stirton, John Stanmeyer, Olivia Arthur, Rena Effendi, Eric Bouvet, Lauren Greenfield, Eamon Mac Mahon, Carolyn Drake, Andrea Diefenbach, Jacob Aue Sobol, Aaron Huey and Stephanie Sinclair each talk about a meal they have had and a picture they took related to it.

I’m not a fan of food photography, whether the kind of thing you see in the glossy mags or Martin Parr‘s  more garish kitchen kitsch attempts. But these pictures are rather better.
