Photography and Eating
In his paper, “Embodied Photography and Touring Food,” Sung-Yueh Perng makes the connection between taking digital pictures of food during a trip and then being able to taste that food again afterwards by viewing the pictures taken. He associates embodiment with visuality. “With the affordances of digital
cameras, bodily senses can be further connected through capturing various elements that enact viewers’ imagination and experiences which relate to their bodily senses.”
If I understand the paper correctly, Perng describes the experience of viewing photographs of food as the sharing of embodied knowledge, adding further that intimacy is enhanced.
