After a random look at my photos I discovered a series of images that portrait the illustration of diverse women in food related products and advertising.
From passata di pomodoro to chickpea flour, this images appear as a powerful symbol to communicate something as intimate and public as food can be.
All of the following images but one, were made in Italy and found randomly through diverse italian cities and places.
