"What’s in our food?

What’s the difference between a bird’s-eye view of a remote vegetable crop and a microscopic swath from a pineapple leaf? How distinct is a pile of table salt from miles and miles of icebergs?
As a food lover and a photographer I answer these questions visually. Using scientific laboratory photo equipment, I journey over the surfaces of both organic and processed foods: my own favorites and America’s over-indulgences. The closer the lens got, the more I saw food and consumers of food (all of us!) as part of a larger eco-system than mere sustenance.
The genesis of this project started when I was probably too young to even realize it. As a child, my parents subscribed to “3-2-1 Contact” Magazine for my sister and me. [ “3-2-1 Contact” was a science educational television show which aired on public television in the 1980s, and had an accompanying children’s magazine.] I was always fascinated with the backpage quiz. It was a tiling of approximately 9 photographs: 3 across/3 down, and all abstractions/details of some commonplace object that we, as kids, generally overlooked. I recall it so clearly: bicycle spokes, bubbles in soda pop, the treads on the bottom of a tennis shoe, etc….The reader had to guess what the photo was. This kept me entertained the whole month, until the next issue came in the mail..."
