See Them Eat is a photographic collection of people caught in the act of enjoying food.
Eating is pretty fundamental, intrinsically pleasurable and kind of gross. So let's document it !
I started taking pictures of people eating when I set up my table to sell my jams and stuff and I found the concept completely fascinating. To me, the best picture of someone eating is a picture which conventionally would not seem like a good picture at all. Typically, it is not very flattering, the mouth is all contorted or hanging open mid-bite. Yet, I find these shots compelling because they convey a certain basic kind of sensual experience.
People's relationship with food is so complex. It can be a source of bodily nourishment, psychological love, emotional comfort or physical punishment. And to see a moment of that captured mid chew is, in my opinion, an intimate curiosity.
