The Best Food Porn 2015

With a day and some hours remaining till the new year, it is time to waste some minutes on things that really don‘t matter before focusing on the important issues in life again; let‘s talk about food porn!

In contrast to general photography, no official gremium(/-a) exist(s) that elect the most relevant shots of the last year (if you are interested in general photography awards, look for example here, here, and here). However, the food porn movement is starting to get there. Last year, the Berlin food week in end of September/ beginning of October picked ‚food porn‘ for the first time as its theme.

A date you should mark in your calendar for 2016, as it is gonna be repeated! As part of the fair, the best food porn photographs get awarded. Among the winners was – as reported by EyeEm – ‚yinyin‘ with his picture of grilling fish:

Also,  also this contribution by ‚urban poetry‘ made it among the top selection:

Now, of course, determining the best food porn is tricky , as viewers weigh the suject – the portrayed diet and the mode of presenting/eating it – equally to the stylistic arrangements of the photograph. For example, take a look on the 2015 compilation of food porn from Vogue:

and compare it with what ‘first we feast‘ presented as the best food porn by Daniel Krieger in 2015:

Good the selected pics from Vogue/’first we feast’ really do show a sharp contrast, but you do get the point… Regarding ‘first we feast’, I am still waiting for their global best instagram food porn pics of 2015 compilation (hey guys, you have only a few hours left to do so) – so far, they only provided weekly overviews of the newest best instagram food porn through the year (they do provide a review though of the best new beers in 2015). Other compilations on the net are already a bit old, i.e. stem from the mid of the year – take a look, for example,  at the New Zealand Herald praying the best instagram food porn accounts. Among the winners – of course – Jamie Oliver:

In any case, 2015 also saw the publication of this interesting study on whether (to put it in my own words) watching too much food porn may be unhealthy…. To sum up their findings – yes! watching food porn has an effect on our brains 🙂
