The current "See Food: Contemporary Photography and the Ways We Eat" exhibition at the Houston Center for Photography is coming to a close this weekend. But before it does, the Center has assembled a panel of local food and media experts to discuss the increasingly dense intersection of dining and photography. They'll be speaking tonight in a open dialog called "How We See Food: A Discussion with Houston's Food Industry Leaders" starting at 6 p.m.
Do you take photos of your food and post them to Instagram? Are you growing your own vegetables in your yard? Did 2010's BP oil spill scare you away from Gulf seafood? Does it feel like you learn about a new type of food every day?
Join HCP for a panel discussion about how the way we see food in our every day world is shifting due to emerging technology, new media and industry trends.
The panel will be moderated by Teresa Byrne-Dodge, editor and publisher of My Table Magazine. Contributing members of the panel include chefs, food purveyors, farmers market coordinators, and more:
