“All man’s efforts are for his mouth, yet his appetite is never satisfied.” (Ecclesiastes 6:7)
A new photography book about food. Haunting, beautiful and slightly humorous, Nearly Eternal traces a fine line between reality and fiction.
Negotiating different levels of artifice, the photographs challenge the assumed authenticity of the food book, inciting artificial desire in the viewer’s mind. Each photograph is a portrait of food in its perfect form – as display.
