Gastronomica, the food and culture journal published by University of California Press that is celebrating their 10th anniversary this year, has a great gallery section on their site featuring a host of beautiful food photography and paintings. It’s an area they specialize in — their raw, sometimes funny, sometimes aggressive cover art is half the reason I subscribed a year ago — but their gallery goes deeper into the artists’ collections and provides some context for their work.

The photo above, titled “Burnt Croissants,” is from a series of photography and still life paintings by California artist Aya Brackett. The series, called “Between Meals,” “looks at the remnants and arrangements of food as it exists in states of preparation, consumption and decay.” Check out more art by Aya Brackett and others at the Gastronomica gallery.
