Mara Trachtenberg, a fine art photographer, constructed a series of fantastical 4×5 photos images for “A Decadent World” with sugar as her sculptural medium. Feeding off an early fascination with food, from her Nana’s eastern-European Jewish kitchen (blintzes, latkes, kasha and kugel), to her father’s garden, Mara’s documented slaughterhouses to explore the connection between animal and human, life and death, and in the same vein, been rapt with Food Network’s Ace of Cakes, the plasticity of sugar, and our societal relationship between the culture of food and the nature of food.
