The Rise of Popular Food Photography: Graham Precey Reflects

Food photography could appear to be growing as a skilled art in itself, especially in light of recent publicity around the subject of food photography. Not only has this included the high profile of the 2015 Food Photographer of the Year competition, which was hosted in May, but also the growth of artwork involving food products. A key example is the work from Dutch artists and filmmakers Lernert& Sander, who created a series of photographs of raw food cut into 98 exact squares. You may well have seen the pictures on websites like Buzzfeed, and the images themselves were commissioned by De Volkskrant, a Dutch newspaper, which was hosting a food photography supplement.
