As the saying goes, “we eat with our eyes first” and the popularity of food photography is proof of that. Food has been vastly documented from seed to harvest, from preparation to the final dish. However, apart from medical imagery, the process of digestion is not part of our visual culture. This is interesting, given the fact that it is during this process that food finally serves its primal purpose.

Reflecting on this project, I wanted to find a way to visually interpret the connection between food and photography. Thinking of the purpose of food and how it is absorbed by the body, I created an abstract interpretation of the digestive system.
