This photo series by Anna Williams is all about putting a bad week behind you - refreshing your body and mind with raw and unrefined ingredients. We tried to give that kind of a feeling using neutral tones and a really stripped down space, along with props and food chosen for their simple beauty. Recently The Voracity was featured in the 2012 PDN Photo Annual, and a short interview with Anna just went up on Great Food Photos. Previous series posted to MeFi projects: How to Shoot a Wolf, Contropastasciutta, A Princely Feast, Fill of Love.
MFK Fisher's 'How to Cook a Wolf' was a masterpiece of food writing that explored the time of food rations during WW2 (related, related). We set out create a photo series that would capture the tone and atmosphere of the book and to explore that kind of hunger - going from comfortable fulfillment to a forced cutting back. Photographed recipes include sardine pie, tomato soup cake, chicken foot soup, and ladyslipper tea, along with moldy cheese, pigeons, and frogs. Delicious. This is our 5th in a series (previously, previously, previously).
FT Marinetti's 1932 'Futurist Cookbook' was one big practical joke filled with bizarre dinners composed of even more bizarre recipes. The photographer, prop stylist, and food stylist all set out to recreate the not just the dishes but also the feel of the cookbook and just how radical it was at the time. This is our 3rd shoot in a series exploring hunger through photography. Previously, previously.
Morels, daggered lettuce, fiddlehead ferns, rabbits, and tender, tender lamb. Part morality tale, this photoessay on foraging and seasonal food was shot over three days as part of the ongoing project 'The Voracity,' exploring hunger, consumption, and beauty. Previously. [more inside]
