Jackie Alpers is an award winning photographer and author whose images explore interpersonal relationships, food, gender & identity. "I am especially interested in the relationships that people have with food and with each other in the presence of food. Food is an important catalyst for so many of life's great themes. It lends itself to vast symbolism and interpretations and I love the rituals surrounding it."
