A Pinhole Diary of Eating Out

A long-term project by photographer Nancy Breslin

I have been photographing meals out since 2003. For 10 years (May 2003 to December 2013) I posted over 2000 of these pictures at fotolog.com/squaremeals. Since 2012 I have been posting work to tumblr, but starting on 1/1/14 I will post all of my pinhole meals here. More of my work is available at www.nancybreslin.com.
