Artist Tara Sellios takes hauntingly beautiful still life photographs of animals and their meat, seafood and their shells, ripe fruit and spilled wine. Raised in the North Shore of Massachusetts by a Greek family, she grew up with visions of a lamb roasting on a spit. She now sets up large format tableaus, grander than her family’s dinner table, deep-seated with emotion. Don’t miss this week’s episode of THE FOOD SEEN!

“Photography doesn’t have to be just snapshots of people or documentary photographs- it can be whatever you want it to be.” [4:50]

“The food, wine, and objects I use are my medium, and everything else is separate.” [15:05]
