Ron Simpson, one of the initiators of The Avocado Show, kicks off the new year starting a tasty series of activities at Foam. The photograph Avocado Pears (1936) by Paul Outerbridge Jr. is the starting point for Ron’s guest appearance to tell more about the origins of the Avocado Show, the sustainability of the avocado industry and the importance of photography and platforms such as Instagram for The Avocado Show.
ABOUT THE EXHIBITION
Feast for the Eyes shows the rich history of food photography - not only in the visual arts, but also in commercial and scientific photography and photojournalism. From the banality of the diner-breakfast special of Stephen Shore the to the allegorical still life of Laura Letinsky, from Roger Fenton's extensive nineteenth-century displays of food to the cookbooks of the sixties. The extensive exhibition, Feast for the Eyes, explores the most important figures and movements in food photography.
Feast for the Eyes – The Story of Food in Photography is organised by the Aperture Foundation, New York and curated by Susan Bright and Denise Wolff.
The exhibition is made possible by the Blockbusterfonds.
