Artrepreneur’s “What Makes Art Great” YouTube series invites art-world luminaries to discuss great works and dive into the lives of legendary artists who made an indelible mark on history. In this episode, “What Are They Eating? Food in Photography,” producer and author Burt Wolf (PBS’ Travels & Traditions, Burt Wolf’s Table, A Taste for Travel), along with top art and gastronomic scholars, take a look at food in photographs by some of the world’s most celebrated photographers, including Philippe Halsman, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Bernice Abbott, and Cindy Sherman.
 
From the depiction of hunting in the caves at Lascaux to Marilyn Monroe eating a hamburger, art in food has always been a central subject, as much as dining and drinking are essential to life. Food in photography occupies an important place in the canon. Take a look to discover key moments of edible subjects captured on camera and discover why the photographs are important from an artistic viewpoint.
