Picture a Cake...

Darlene Kaczmarczyk

Friday, March 13 - 10:00AM to 10:45AM
Celestin D

We're all familiar with the manifestations of foodie culture: photos of every meal on Facebook, blogs devoted to the minutia of food prep, or a Flickr site called "What I ate" with nearly a million photographs. What's not so apparent is the role food photography has played in this phenomenon. The way food is depicted reflects our cultural values and economic status and, of course, influences what and how we eat. In this presentation, I'll look at the variety of ways food is depicted in photographs by artists to advertisers and by bakers to Barthes.
