Food is both basic and multifaceted. It nourishes satisfies, levels, defines and gathers us. Food unifies and brings people together as part of the human experience. When people embrace food and make it their own, it can shape and define their lives in big ways.
Food can cultivate a lifestyle, preserve cultural identity, foster a small business, nurture relationships and serve a community.
This project is a documentation of five different groups of people that experience food in uniquely different ways. Through photo essays and written stories I strive to capture what how food brings people together in specific ways and what it means to them. To experience the full photo stories and the website that I coded and designed for this project please visit www.gatherphotoproject.com.
