Food is art. (Can we get an amen?) Food photography? That's next level art—and food photographer Paul Wagtouicz is out to up our appreciation of it with an auction this Thursday, April 20 in New York. Bonus: the auction proceeds will benefit the ACLU.
Wagtouicz, who often shoots for Grubstreet, which broke news of the auction, told the blog he's increasingly concerned that food art is becoming something we post online in order to garner likes on Instagram and Facebook. This auction, then, will force people off their phones, and to look up and appreciate food art for art's sake.
