Perhaps the salient thing about food, from a photographer’s point of view, is that it doesn’t last. Even the most gorgeous, curvaceous pepper – those shot by Edward Weston in 1930 are among the camera’s greatest still lifes – must either be chopped up and eaten, or rot.
Well, for some reason, the Guardian didn’t ask me, but then that maybe because I’ve been less than complementary about some of Jonathan Jones’ views about photography in the past… Well, maybe not. Here’s my contribution anyway, from the project Andy Warhol’s Dead – a photographic study of 32 different tomato soup tins. I’ll still only eat “normal” Heinz tomato soup.
