During this workshop you will be inspired by photographers from the exhibition who display their very diverse ideas on one of the principal genres of art; Still life. How would a still life made by you look and what types of food would fit in? Think of a festive meal you would prepare for yourself and construct a composition from the food and props available, ending up in a very classical or contemporary work of art. Your best image will be printed to take home.

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 to the allegorical still life of Laura Letinsky, from Roger Fenton's extensive nineteenth-century displays of food to the cookbooks of the Sixties.
