Dinah Fried loves reading. But what she loves in a book more is the meal description made by the author. What’s inside that meal, how it is cooked, the way the table is arranged. And these are the pieces that usually impress her more and leave her a reminder of that book. Maybe for the strong link that happens between smells, tastes and  a particular moment in life, that usually turns into a bright memory. Vivid descriptions, sometimes only outlined, but that seems to come to the nose, till to make us smell the dishes, feel the warmth of the meal and the cosy atmosphere inside the room. Such strong literary reminds, that the young photographer and graphic designer decided to reproduce them, in their shape and substance, and to collect them in a photographic work, turned after into a book, called “Fictitious Dishes”. A lovely album of photographs of memorably meals from celebrated literature of the last two centuries, with the paragraphs they are related to. And this is how she imagines the tables where The Great Gatsby, or Heidi or Alice in wonderland had their meals. A collection of images that, like small tastes, invite us to read the whole novel.
