Postprandial observes the relationship of sociology and food consumption, by observing subjects who eat alone it captures the reflection of the ‘meal for one’ just consumed. The project visualises how the modern day is transforming the traditions of eating causing the individualistic world to arguably associate food as a mundane activity simply refueling for survival.


The series questions ‘does loneliness become a choice or is it an unconscious habitual routine?’ The sitters in the images each have their own justification of why they eat alone, but that doesn’t necessary mean they enjoy not sharing company over meal time.


Naomi believes that modernisation of the food culture enforces social habits, that a country’s eating customs can shape the personalities of its citizens and that there is a strong relationship between a culture’s eating habits and the individuals’ social skills. 


This project has been produced as a newspaper spread accompanied by a comprehensive piece of writing by Naomi on food consumption.
