Food Photography Is Nothing New

The popularity of FoodSpotting, a self-described "community-driven visual potluck," and other such user-generated networks might suggest that food photography is the newest craze. To an extent, it is. But let's get real: People have always loved food, and artists have been serving up their interpretations for centuries.

A photo exhibition at New York's Robert Mann Gallery titled Food For Thought presents a wide-ranging visual feast of photos that have at least one obvious thing in common: Food. Even Ansel Adams took food photos! Post your favorite feast to our Flickr.
