Analog Food

PRESENTED ON NOV 10, 2012
IN WILLIAMSBURG @ VOL 3

"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.

Food, Humans & The Written Word

BY EMILY CRUMPACKER
@ VOL 21 ON DEC 06, 2016

It is food, however, that has propelled her into work and a life so full it is hard to comprehend — her years in France as a chef’s assistant in a French culinary school, cooking along side Simone Beck and Julia Child -writing a couple of books, being a spokesperson, working as private chef for Leonardo DiCaprio and Martin Scorsese and a stint selling Christmas trees—along with many other experiences—have all shaped her inquisitive enthusiasm and pure zest for life.
