Laura Letinsky’s still life food photographs have appeared in Bon Appétit and Martha Stewart Living, but they depart from the perfectionist culinary tradition. Instead, these still life photographs depict meals and place settings in different chaotic circumstances like plates occupied with a half-eaten cantaloupe, a lollipop, and a piece of fish. The brightly colored fruit in the photographs contrasts sharply with the nearly uniform pale backdrops, creating a visually stunning display. Tue-Thu, Sat-Sun 10 a.m.-5 p.m.; Fri 10 a.m.-8 p.m.
