Charles Roux fotografiert in seiner Bilderserie Fictious Feasts fiktive Speisen aus Klassikern der Literaturgeschichte. Dinah Frieds fotografierte vor vier Jahren exakt das gleiche und nannte das ganze Fictious Dishes und machte dann auch ein Buch daraus. Go figure.

Weaving the link between literature, food and photography, Fictitious Feasts is based upon food scenes in fiction texts. Eating is an essential activity, and connects both a sense of survival and social functions. Literature is frequently embedded in the imagery of food, and in many cases, characters are busy with the preparation or the consumption of a meal. The motif of food is particularly interesting in so far as it deeply reveals everyday life and its rituals, or it is a landmark in in the storytelling.

Giving life to the story, food can also define a character or convey another theme: it relates the characters to some social or cultural identity. It could be said that writing reveals a great deal of human behaviours when intertwined with the literary treatment of food, for food not only nourishes but it is also a pretext to dramatic events or metaphors. Both food and words are essential to the human race and the way they are closely interwoven in literature is relevant of a certain human dimension. Meals fulfil physical needs as well as they provide psycho-emotional nourishment. The powerfulness of orality engages all the senses.
