Catalogue Note

'The work represents five typical feeding times of the American middle class: Breakfast, Coffee Break, Lunch, Cocktails and Dinner were selected as the U S of A table d' hote.  The original skiagraphic images were made by exposing actual foods/meals to light sensitive materials, which were then transferred to aluminum plates. . . They consist of various food/meal combinations resulting from an exploration of the aleatory nature of the printing phase.  Each of the portfolios in the edition of 100 were made from the same initial set of pictures but no two prints are identical and no two portfolios contain exactly the same prints.' -Robert Heinecken
