Following on from his celebrated book Shelter, this remarkable project from Dutch photographer Henk Wildschut investigates and surveys the realities of industrialized farming and food production. Both documentary and forensic in scope and tenor, Foodtraces the interiors, architectures, people, animals and other details that mark vegetable cultivators, stock farms, hatcheries, fish farms, laboratories, inspection bodies and suppliers of abattoir equipment. The resulting body of work suggests an industrial reality far removed from common perceptions and mythologies surrounding food and its source. Published by the brilliant Post Editions (Rotterdam) and brought to us by Idea Books (Amsterdam), Food is one of our picks for photo book of the year.
