Real Food celebrates all things food through the eyes of the renowned British photographer Martin Parr – a kaleidoscope of foods the world over, from hot dogs to sticky buns and langoustine to lemon meringue pie. Featuring photographs taken throughout Martin Parr’s prolific career to-date, Real Food contains the very best of Parr’s iconic imagery – a collection of close-up food shots, in typical garish color, taken by Parr throughout his travels across the world.

Introduced with an essay by Fergus Henderson, British chef and founder of the restaurant St John’s in London, which considers Parr’s photographs in the context of global cuisine, and Parr’s fascination with the social aspect of food that is at the heart of these photographs.
