NOWNESS, an online magazine of everything hip, luxurious, or artfully bizarre, is hosting their first food photography contest. All of the entries were submitted by readers, which may make the whole enterprise seem plebian, except that NOWNESS readers just aren’t average. The entries ranges from farm fresh piles of watermelons to carefully curated combinations that were clearly made by accomplished, if amateur, chefs.
Even if you don’t happen to love food photography, you may find yourself drawn in to the experience of peeking at what people are eating at home when they aren’t noshing on cold cuts and french fries. Or when they’re noshing on the most aesthetic cold cuts and french fries ever. If you’re a foodie, you’ll love the diversity of subject, and if you’re not, well, maybe you’ll just like the pretty colors.
