On the first episode of THE FOOD SEEN in 2012, Caren Alpert, a San Francisco based photographer, takes a closer look at food … a much closer look. She uses a scanning electron microscope for her “terra cibus” project, magnifying the surfaces of food between ten and a thousand times, abstracting their textures, making them seems as if they were bird’s eye views of otherwordly landscapes. Table salt looks like ice floes, cauliflower resembles a canyon/chasm, fortune cookies turn into tributaries, and my favorite, cake sprinkles. This episode is sponsored by S. Wallace Edwards & Sons

"I thought why not take a closer look at what we eat every day...Sugar looks otherworldly under the microscope."

--Caren Alpert on The Food Seen
