Dejeuner

Dale M. Reid


The portrayal of food as an art form is deeply rooted in cultural history. Photographer Reid's exhibition Dejeuner seduces the viewer with provocative images of the oyster mushroom. Through traditional composition, lighting ,and darkroom development, Reid’s skilled execution of each photograph captures the texture and allure of the oyster mushroom. Dejeuner's examination of this sacred and mystical symbol inspires reflection about the arts, communion with food, nature, and beauty.
