This book starts from the singular idea of ​​Deborah Barsel (who then worked at the George Eastman Museum) at the end of the 1970s, to compile in a book images and recipes of photographers.

In 1977, Barsel therefore launched a call for proposals to photographers so that they could send them their favorite recipes and their culinary images. To his surprise, many respond to his call. However, the project is put on hold when Barsel leaves his post, and it is Lisa Hostetler who will finally fall 35 years later on a box labeled “photo cookbook”. Then she discovers Barsel’s correspondence with the photographers (ranging from the great names of the time like Ansel Adams and Brassai, to emerging photographers like Eggleston and Stephen Shore) and decides to give shape to the project with the publishing house Aperture.

We find in this book, in addition to the fun and humor of the photographers who lent themselves to the game, the recipe for the omelette with cactus by Ed Ruscha, the cheesecake by Barbara Crane or even the poached eggs with beer by Ansel Adams.

Ce livre part de la singulière idée de Deborah Barsel (qui travaillait alors au George Eastman Museum) à la fin des années 1970, de compiler dans un livre des images et des recettes de photographes.

En 1977, Barsel lance donc un appel à propositions auprès des photographes afin que ceux-ci lui envoient leurs recettes favorites et leurs images culinaires. À sa surprise, beaucoup répondent à son appel. Le projet se met cependant en pause quand Barsel quitte son poste, et c’est Lisa Hostetler qui tombera finalement 35 ans plus tard sur une boite labellisée « photo cookbook ». Elle y découvre alors la correspondance de Barsel avec les photographes (allant des grands noms de l’époque comme Ansel Adams et Brassai, aux photographes émergents comme Eggleston et Stephen Shore) et décide de donner forme au projet avec la maison d’édition Aperture.

On trouve dans ce livre, outre le plaisir et l’humour des photographes qui se sont prêtés au jeu, la recette de l’omelette au cactus de Ed Ruscha, le cheesecake de Barbara Crane ou encore les oeufs pochés à la bière de Ansel Adams.
