Food for Thought – Photo North Festival
The festival’s three main themes this year focused on Mental Health, Food and the Politics of Food and Fashion. The exhibition showcased finalist images from our 2019 Awards - the world’s finest food photography - and showing every aspect of food and its place in society from around the world.
On Saturday 30 November, Caroline Kenyon, Director of Pink Lady® Food Photographer of the Year, shared the story of how she and her team created the Awards and built them into a global force - entries came from 77 countries this year. About much more than just pretty picture of food on a plate, the Awards shows food in its every setting and its place in culture across the world.
She explained the depth and diversity of the Awards - from InterContinental Food at the Table for stunning shots of food ready to eat, to World Food Programme Food for Life, showing the humanitarian aspect of food, Marks & Spencer Food Portraiture showing the very best styled food photography to Fujifilm Award for Innovation and Errazuriz Wine Photographer of the Year.
“I was absolutely delighted to take part in the second Photo North Festival. Peter Dench and Sharon Price, the founders, are esteemed figures in the photography world and I knew the festival would be showing work of the very best. I was not disappointed. And a special treat to meet the photojournalist legend himself, Denis Thorpe, a man of such brilliance and modesty." - Caroline Kenyon, Director of the Awards
