This new art exhibit explores our obsession with food photography (VIDEO)

Tip: Don't go on an empty stomach!

There's a new art exhibition at North Vancouver's Polygon Gallery, but don't come on an empty stomach.

'Feast for the Eyes: The Story of Food in Photography' is a tasty tour through the history of food photography; something that has exploded in popularity in recent months, given the pandemic and our social media-obsessed society.

The exhibition contains works from over 60 of the world’s leading artists, from the late 19th century to today, and features an assortment of over 100 images from photojournalism, fashion photography, rare cookbooks, and even advertising.

Another highlight is The Feast Shop, an expansion of the gallery's retail store, offering a selection of local cookbooks and culinary items, underscoring the need to support local businesses. 

The show will be on display until May 30.
