Appetites.

Painter Lee Price's photorealistic self portraits are impressive to begin with, but it was her explanation for choosing to focus on a woman's relationship with food that really got me. She tells Don't Panic: "Often, women are brought up to control their appetites. Not just for food, but in many areas of life. We are taught to be givers, to nurture others at the expense of our own needs (in a way that men are not). I think food, for some reason, is one way we have chosen to give back to ourselves - to attempt to nurture ourselves."


Pancakes, pie, and sugar cereal in the bath; peaches and cherry cheesecake in bed: it's a little funny and a little frightening, a little foreign and a little familiar. 

More from Lee Price, here. Happy Thursday!
