Open­ing next month at Am­s­ter­dam pho­tog­ra­phy mu­seum Foam, ‘Feast for the Eyes’ of­fers a rich his­tory of food pho­tog­ra­phy, from 19th-cen­tury still-lifes and vin­tage cook­books to conceptual art. There’s plenty pre-dat­ing the #foodie gen­er­a­tion, show­ing just how long peo­ple have been ob­sessed with cap­tur­ing what they eat, in all its glo­ri­ous forms. Con­sider this jelly recre­ation of the dance­floor in Satur­day Night Fever, pho­tographed by Grant Cor­nett, or the slightly ab­surd Wa­ter­melon/bread by Robert Cum­ming. Mouth­wa­ter­ingly good. ‘Feast for the Eyes’, 21 De­cem­ber6 March, at Foam,
