In her book Feast for the Eyes, a true encyclopedia of food photography, Susan Bright, writer, exhibition curator specializing in the production, dissemination and interpretation of photography, traces the history of this part of photography, which had never been done before.

Susan Bright chronologically and through a large number of photographers takes up the evolution of food photography, where genres are diverse and come from art, everyday life and photojournalism. There are photographers from the 19th century to the 21st century, from different regions of the world, such as William Talbot, Irving Penn or Sophie Calle.
Through her book, Susan Bright explores important figures, but also the different movements of food photography, giving us an exhaustive vision of what it is. An essential book for all lovers of the culinary image.
