“The truth does not change according to our ability to stomach it.”
– Flanney O’Conner
With the American consumer eating nearly one ton of food every year, the question must be asked; what exactly are we eating? Eighteen common foods found in todays western culture have been identified and examined to help create an awareness for today’s generation as to what we are actually consuming.
By pursue easier, cheaper, and faster ways of creating and obtaining food, consumers don’t know the truth about their food and have grown accustomed to the quality and ingredients that have found their way into our everyday life. We are who we are because of what we eat, so shouldn’t we know what we are eating?
By identifying the origin of the foods and ingredients, the images of Edible Truths have been created so visual truths can educate through the medium of photography; showing and not just telling to create an emotional relationship with what we eat and drink. Each image are constructed photographic montages, which juxtapose settings of reality of where certain foods are consumed and have humorously applied the origin to illustrate the fact.
Saturday, April 15th from 6:00 PM – 9:00 PM at Leucadia Photoworks (374 North Highway 101, Suite F15, Encinitas, CA 92024 – Travel Trust Building – Enter n back on Melrose).
