Joel Devereux’s ‘FOODP*RN’ Is Giving Us Cravings

Dinner is served at Brisbane portrait photographer Joel Devereux’s mouth-watering new photo exhibition “FOODP*RN” at the MELT Festival.

The exhibition features raunchy shots of 100 men wearing nothing but food.

Photographer Joel Devereux said the project took 18 months to complete. It sends up how social media’s “foodporn” phenomenon has gone beyond just a ‘primal need to eat to live’.

“The idea of ‘FOODP*RN’ came to me after years of trawling through thousands of photos on Instagram, with the hashtag #foodporn.

“Much of what I saw didn’t exactly capture the glossy desire or the essence of what the hashtag was aiming to stand for. So I thought, ‘Why don’t I create actual foodporn?’

“I’m a self-funded artist and taking on this project has really made me regret not seeking some kind of sponsorship from the New Farm IGA!”

MELT Festival shares Brisbane’s LGBTI voice

The MELT Festival is the Brisbane Powerhouse’s annual celebration of queer arts and culture. It showcases local, interstate and international actors, rock star singers, dancers, photographers, illustrators, comedians and circus artists.

Brisbane Powerhouse artistic director Kris Stewart said Brisbane’s LGBTI voice echos through the MELT program.

“The musical soul of the Brisbane LGBTI+ community will be shared through the queer culture musical phenomenon RENT, the celebration of musical punk cinema in Hedwig 15, the comedic cabaret of On A Night Like This: The Erin Minogue Experience and the original production Boys of Sondheim.

Among the opening night performances: the vaginal love story The Adventures of Yoni 1 and Yoni 2.
