Eat your history : a shared table | Sydney Living Museums | Exhibition

I was commissioned by the Sydney Living Museums to photograph a colonial themed food shoot at their Elisabeth Farm property in Parramatta. The shoot is part of the Museum of Sydney’s latest exhibition “Eat your history : a shared table”.

The way to a city’s heart is through its stomach. In this brand new exhibition, Sydney Living Museums invites you to take a fascinating stroll through eight historic homes that capture the different ages of Sydney’s food culture from 1788 to the 1950s. From the farmhouse-kitchen comforts of Elizabeth Farm to the excesses of Regency dining at Elizabeth Bay House and the atomic-age modernity of the Rose Seidler House kitchen, nothing reveals Sydney’s rise from convict colony to cosmopolitan city as deliciously as a look behind our kitchen and dining room doors.
