Condiment — Adventures in Food and Form is a publication and project-base exploring the relationship between food and creativity and food and community.

For the most part, food is nature at its most familiar. While views on its production and presentation become ever more complex and conflicted, it is nevertheless us that set the parameters.

As its masters we think: food is here to serve us. But quite possibly: we are here to serve food. Reversing the roles and giving up control is an eye-opening exercise. After all it is we who are dependent on food, and not food that is dependent on us.

One key attribute to the good servant is enthusiasm and enthusiasm is most often found in the amateur. The true amateur, of which E.C. Large was proudly an advocate, is defined as “one who loves”.

Beyond our own lack of expertise, although that is true too, it is this simple sentiment that has informed CondimentAdventures in Food and Form. Equal parts wonder and worship, each page of this publication is not as much about what we do know as what we don’t.

Taken between the years of 1998 and 2005, theimages in this exquisitely printed volumepresent anti-journalistic, documentary stylephotographs, some real, some staged, of everyday life, which are all at once moving,whimsical, goofy, dark, haunting, romanticand ultimately revelatory of an at timespainfully alienating yet deliriously, gorgeous and fantastical world as seen through the eyes, mind and lens of the artist.

I Have a Room with Everything traces of intense consciousness overlap reality and trigger Bonajo’s as well as the viewer’s imagination. “Photography for meis never intended to gain the upper hand,” says Bonajo, “but a way of sculpting mentallife.” For Bonajo, taking the photograph isalmost like a ritual, a supreme momentumin which there is an extended awareness ofthe different layers and meanings of reality.
