Hey L.A.! The Getty Museum has an exhibition on right now called "In Focus: Tasteful Pictures" that’s exclusively food photographs. Moreover, all 150 pieces are “non-digital” photos, they come from the Museum’s permanent collection although some have never been shown before, and the earliest is from the mid-19th century. Fancy! If I were there, I would go. This L.A. Times article makes it sound interesting enough, anyway, plus art education is important! And photography is pretty easy to appreciate (i.e., “like,” i.e., “understand what’s going on,”), I think. Whatever, I don’t know anything, but I like looking at representations of food, and it’s so common now you forget that it can be more than an illustration of your meal.
HA, look at me “discussing” art.
The above photograph is called Still Life with Fruit and Decanter, shot in 1860 in London by Roger Fenton.
