I think taking a photograph of the food is a big art. It has showed everybody’s daily life and culture over the years. While the time goes quickly, your need would change as well. People’s need keep changing all the time, so it is always better to taking photographs what was your culture and what it is now. Food plays a big role in cultures. All these photographs will present us in the future. After centuries people will look at the photographs of our food culture and will try to understand how was our eating habits, how healthy we were and how creative we were. Same for us, now we look at the photographs of the food last 50-100 years and figuring out how was their food culture, what was the food like, photographing the food was an art? Photographing the food is an art, just like the producing and presenting the food. I believe who ever takes a photograph of the food, is creating a documentary for future, without knowing it.
