Food For Your Eyes was born in 2007 , as a self initiated project curated by Nathalie Belayche to promote international young talents in photography thru a series of events featuring live projections of slideshows and talks. Formerly hosted in a Paris photo-studio near Pere Lachaise every three month, the events became a meeting place for new photography discoveries. It was a delight to share such visual stimuli with guests ( photo editors, directors of International photography festival, book publishers, curators, gallerists, photographers) in a friendly and tasty atmosphere. We served good wine, french cheese and delicious home made tuna cakes!
The adventures of Food For Your Eyes Slideshows ended up with the year 2010, but during all this time and afterwards, the project continued as a web based photography project with a collection of slideshows archived online on a Vimeo channel a dedicated tumblr blog and a twitter feed.
Produced and designed since the beginning as a travelling exhibition, the slideshows event hit the road. We went on screen in Vienna for the Eyes On-European Month of Photography (November 2008, November 2010). Food For Your Eyes was invited to perform at F/Stop International Photography Festival in Leipzig (July 2009). An improvised screening ( "slideshows by the pool" ) was held for the participants of Emerging Photographers Forum in Kuala Lumpur ( May 2009). In june 2010, London was calling, asking to make a presentation for Carousel Slide Slam event organised by Foto8/ Host gallery. The US based organisation SlideLuck Potshow commissionned Food For Your Eyes to curate a large program for the first Slideluck Potshow in Paris (June 2010).
In addition to producing the slideshows events, Nathalie Belayche curates photography exhibitions, contributes to online magazines and blogs and serves as a portfolio reviewer in many international photogrpahy festivals. An overview of Food For Your Eyes projects could be seen online

Olivier Cablat 's work has a lot of humor in it, he likes to play with typologies and absurd suburban landscpapes. His Temple series was featuring at Food For Your Eyes slideshows events in Paris, Arles and Vienna in 2010. He made a self published book with the same series. In 2012, he was exhibited at Rencontres de la Photographie in Arles with the series Egypt 3000 .
