I’m fed up with every photo of food on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and elsewhere looking so bloody perfect. Perfectly plated, perfectly photographed, perfectly perfect. You’d never think that a human being had been anywhere near the dish or ingredient to do anything is vulgar as actually cook or eat it.
As my own modest counter balance to the rage for arid perfection, I’m going to post photos of plates of food that people have actually tucked onto, deconstructed in the process of chomping them down.
First, the remains of a roast chicken.
I’m not claiming that’s beautiful, but at least it looks as if someone has actually eaten the damn thing.
