SUzanne REitsma: Chewing

Suzanne Reitsma, born and raised in the Netherlands, studied anthropology and photographic design in Amsterdam. She works as a photographer/artist in Aarhus, Denmark. Her work has been exhibited at several museums in the Netherlands.


We eat food every day, at any time of the day. Eating is a social activity, we like to eat together. But we don’t want people to see us with our mouth full of food. We like dining together, but we are not fond of seeing each other chewing on something. Especially not when there is a photo camera around. Often we delete the pictures of family and friends, when they are just taking a bite.

This contradiction of eating at any time of the day, but not wanting to see people with their mouth full is something I want to show with my photo series. How weird is it, to see someone chewing?
