Combining food with art in a portrait series which reminds us of the Golden Age. If you look at the work of photographer Marie Cécile Thijs, it’s just that. And now the Eduard Planting Gallery in Amsterdam launches a new book by her.

The book is a collection of 65 portraits with one thing in common; they all have food as main subject. From flying lemons to floating peas, this book is an eye catcher for your coffee table.

Of course a book can not compete with the real deal. For everyone who would like to see some food portraits that are bound to make you hungry, we have got some good news. The work of Marie Cécile Thijs can be found in the collections of Amsterdam’s Rijksmuseum. Go there or, of course, buy the beautiful book!
