Memorable Meals explores through the large scale photographic print and accompanying text, the unique and consuming human activity of eating. Food preferences, special diets, eating patterns, construct a digestive blueprint - a significant line in the perspective of our life.
The distinct personal styles and manifestations of a diverse spectrum of people are communicated through the ritual of eating their favorite meal. A tap dancer, a professor, a photo-artist, an actress, are some of the documented case studies. In each person we see their individuality and our collective similarity.
Each case study contains a sequential set of up to 5 photographs and an accompanying text describing that particular individual in the context of eating. The black and white silverprints measure about 32" x 40"- 84cm x 102cm and are selectively hand colored, focusing on the person and food; the text measures 11" x 14" - 28 cm x 36 cm. There are 60 photographs in this body of work printed in an edition of 5.
