Kashrut are principles derived from the Torah that describe the foundational laws for the Jewish people and their relationship to the preparation, ritual and consumption of food; its precise instructions of guidance have been observed for more than three thousand years.


Continuing a body of work located in food anthropology, Naomi Goddard spent time documenting how aspects of Jewish food culture are inscribed into the landscape, from the domestic to the commercial, observing how their religion and ritual influence the structures of everyday routines.


Naomi’s interest in the cuisine develops and leads on to an engagement with the landscape through a more subtle food association, looking at spaces embedded in the foundation of the Holy Land. Accompanying this is her reflection on the Jewish commandment of ‘planting fruit trees in Israel will bring blessing to the people and the Land’ as the people dedicate and root themselves in the occupied territory.


Quiet and reflective in tone, Naomi’s photographs offer a personal insight into the lives of individuals and households and point to a wider sense of identity of ‘a land flowing with milk and honey.’


This project has been produced as an artist book, here is a sample of the selected images which were exhibited at The Bargehouse in London.


The images have also featured in Culture Trip and published in FotoFilmic JRNL2
