Food is having a cultural moment. Of course, food has always been integral and essential to living, but American culture has recently become extensively interested in food as a hobby and artistic pursuit. Consequently, professions like food photography and food styling have become a popular and viable career choice. Yet, what does the proliferation of "foodie" culture suggest about American culture? Think about how these professions represent changes in culture. These thoughts will develop into an argument that can help you set up a lengthy and thoughtful paper. While I do not want to write your title for you, here are some good questions to get you started in a helpful direction:

  • How does food photography resemble other forms of photography that are more traditional?
  • Does food styling relate to other forms of styling, such as model styling and hair styling?
  • Why is America obsessed with foodie culture?
  • Is it irresponsible to fetishize food during climate change and farming droughts?

Good luck!
