FEAST FOR THE EYES - THE STORY OF FOOD IN PHOTOGRAPHYPeluquería, 1979 © Ouka Leele
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.
The exhibition is on view at Foam until 3 March 2019.

This winter Foam shows the work of Dutch artist Daan Paans in his first solo museum exhibition Panta Rhei. Comprising photography, sculptures and a video piece, in this exhibition the artist plays with the way in which we assign value to artworks and historical artefacts, and how our interpretations change imperceptibly over time.
The exhibition is on view at Foam until 24 February 2019.
Foam is supported by the BankGiro Loterij, De Brauw Blackstone Westbroek, Gemeente Amsterdam, Olympus and the VandenEnde Foundation.
