Analog Food

@ VOL 3 ON NOV 10, 2012

"If we are what we eat, and art reflects what we are, is the art that I make what I eat?" Lulú De Panbehchi asks this question as she is inspired with photography. To find her answer, she mixes some of her favorite foods (like chocolate and cookies) and favorite drinks (like wine) with the film in her camera and has fun with the results.
