Food can be photographed in magnificent ways, even if the food resembles a slab of concrete plopped onto a bun. That is evident in "Yum!!," a FotoWeek D.C. exhibit in which local photographers explore the beauty of food. Visitors can see how professional and student photographers snag shots of the work of Washington's top chefs. But be warned: After seeing this show, you will probably be (a) hungry and (b) disillusioned with the way this art form can be used to sell subpar hamburgers.
