Zooming In On Magnified Food

Cake Sprinkles

What does our food look like at a microscopic level? This is the kind of question that prompted San-Francisco photographer Caren Alpert to begin her impressive series entitled Terra Cibus.

Alpert’s Terra Cibus series will be on display at the James Beard Foundation in New York till the end of the month.
