Marcella Hazan, the recently departed Italian food writer, famously said, “Cooking is an art, but you eat it too.” In recent years, photography and food have collided in a big way, from famous photographers who have taken the unlikely route of shooting cookbooks to others who have used food to build full-blown gallery installations. Now, we’re looking for your images capturing the intersection of art and food, whatever that means to you, from food photographed artfully to art made out of food.

This group show will be curated by Alison Zavos, Editor-in-Chief at Feature Shoot. To submit, email up to five images (620 pixels wide on the shortest side, saved for web, no borders or watermarks) titled with your name and the number of the image (ex: yourname_01.jpg) to fsgroupshow (at) gmail (dot) com with “Art of Food” in the subject line. Please include your full name, website and image captions within the body of the email.

You may also submit via Instagram simply by following @featureshoot and posting your images using the hashtag #featureshootfood. Submissions are already rolling in, so act now for the chance to have your image featured on our Instagram.

This show is supported by Squarespace, the intuitive website publishing platform that makes it simple for photographers to build creative and professional sites with their combo of award-winning designs, hosting, domains, and commerce. Selected photos will run on the Feature Shoot website and be promoted through our social media channels. Copyright remains with the photographer.

Deadline for submissions is July 16, 2016.

Squarespace is a Feature Shoot sponsor.

“The way people eat at work is pretty sad,” the disillusioned ethnographer June Jo Lee told journalist Malia Wollan of The New York Times Magazine. For the story Failure to Lunch: The lamentable rise of desktop dining, the magazine teamed up with New York City-based photographer Brian Finke to conduct a survey of the state of munching in American offices.

Dutch-Inspired Photos of Food Rescued from NYC Dumpsters

juiceFresh juices and smoothies rescued from a distribution facility dumpster filled with unopened bottles of fresh juices not yet expired but possibly too close to the expiration date to go on market shelves. Confusion around “best by”, “use by” and “sell by” dates leads to a large amount of food waste. – Greenpoint, Brooklyn.

Bread is one of the most wasted food items. Americans buy 3 billion loaves a year – with 750 million loaves ending up in the trash. All of the food pictured above was rescued from curbside trash outside of a market and bakery in Cobble Hill, Brooklyn.

As stores close and markets wind down across New York City, masses of food are cast out into the dumpsters and into the streets. Around the same time, the food rescuers or ‘freegans’ as they are known, arrive to salvage the often perfectly edible food. NYC-based photographer Aliza Eliazarov’s latest project Waste Not shines the spotlight on the issue of food waste in her city, highlighting the unsettling statistic that $165 billion of food is wasted annually in the US, while also bringing attention to a global problem.

New York-based photographer Isabella Giancarlo calls them “heartbreak quotes.” They’re the words people say when they’re breaking up— the opposite of a Hallmark card, though often almost as trite. In order to “sweeten” these brief and painful verses, she baked them into some of her favorite treats for the series EAT YR HEART OUT.

If there’s one food item that has continued to beguile the American masses over the last century, it’s jello. Since it first graced the pages of Ladies’ Home Journal at the turn of the century, the animal bone-derived product has gone on to become a staple of the suburban household, promising picture-perfect domesticity for busy mid-century moms. Jell-O could be sweet or savory, appearing both as desserts and in salad form with congealed vegetables and meats. For the Nowstalgia issue of PAPERMAG, Los Angeles-based photography duo JUCO—composed of Julia Galdo and Cody Cloud—takes on the most revolting and enchanting edible from our shared past, pairing surreal (and all too real) jello molds with fall’s hottest vintage fashions.
