Food and travel photography are as old as the medium itself. Initially, when photography was in its infancy, food was one of the most photographed subjects. With the advancement of the medium, and the launch of the first point-and-shoot camera by Kodak, travel photography, too, became popular.
Over time, the genres have grown to take a very different meaning. Today, artists are using food and travel photography as a means to express and explore their personal journeys, their emotions. But sometimes, it's much more than a story of an individual... It's about the narrative of a community and its people.
Better Photography is India’s most widely read magazine on the art and practice of photography. It is also the leading technical authority, with its own test bench, with stand-alone gear and accessory reviews.
