Join the Garden in welcoming the work of acclaimed photographer,
Caren Alpert to the Missouri Botanical Garden September 6 through November 20 for her exhibit entitled “terra cibus.”

The San Francisco-based fine art and commercial photographer combines her love for photography, food and art in photos taken with an electron microscope. Alpert captures the microscopic, almost other-worldly surfaces of common foods such as Oreo cookies, shrimp, leaves and candy, turning what might normally be a scientific endeavor into fine art.

The exhibit assists in bringing attention to the International Year of Food and the Garden’s “Foodology: Dig In” theme for 2013.
