What Food Looks Like

Photography, What Food Looks Like

 “What Food Looks Like” - I set out to photograph food, food access, food insecurity and food deserts in the form of urban community gardens, farmers and farms, neighborhoods, people and organizations here in the Phoenix metro area. 

Within the first four months I had visited 25 places, including; Mesa Urban Garden, The Urban Garden, The Micro Farm Project, Growhouse, Gilbert Farmer’s Market, Recycled City Compost, Arizona Microgreens, The Orchard Community Learning Center, PHX Renews, Garfield Community Garden, Hayden Flour Mills, Hope House Farms, St. Mary’s Foodbank, The Simple Farm, St. Vincent de Paul, Neighborhood Ministries Foodbank. I walked and photographed the eight neighborhoods of Central City South identified in a 2011 study completed by the ASU School of Sustainability in conjunction with the Phoenix Revitalization Corporation’s study on food access.

Selected image included in the JEG Photography Exhibition Feb 15 - Marech 9, 2016, Texas Woman's University.
