Instagram foodies are perpetuating racism according to this photographer

Notable food photographer Celeste Noche has claimed that the foodies on Instagram are perpetuating racist stereotypes with their posts.

“We’ve never quite escaped the idea that Western is the status quo, so anything other is viewed as, well, ‘other’, This leads people to exotify and overcompensate in styling dishes that aren’t normal to them, because they don’t understand or haven’t experienced how these dishes can exist on their own.” He said.

Noche appeared on the recent episode of Racist Sandwich podcast which takes a look at the food through lens of race, gender and class.
