Food Language

Role: Creative Direction, Photographer

Tools: Photoshop

Duration:  Jan - March 2024

A visual exploration of how food acts as a unifying force in diverse communities, focusing on the Toronto context.

Through a series of photographs, the project captures the shared moments of connection and intimacy that occur around the dinner table in an otherwise isolating world.

This is encapsulated in gestures such as sharing food and serving others before yourself at the dinner table as a way to preserve the communities we live in. When we slow down and notice these food related practices and gestures, we realise our humanity at its core is the need for meaningful connections, that are in many cultures, developed through food.
