Yesterday I posted pictures of what individuals eat around the world, today here are photographs of what whole families eat around the world.
A bit about the book…
Quote – “Peter Menzel and Faith D’Alusio’s Hungry Planet: What the World Eats (public library) (is) so powerful — a photographic journey to 24 countries, where the authors stayed with 30 different families for a week each, documenting on paper and film what these families ate and how much it cost.
Each photograph depicts all the family members in their home environment, surrounded by a week’s worth of groceries.
Comparing these images makes for some shocking conclusions, both funny and sad — prolific fodder for sociology, economics, and anthropology college papers alike. But to stick to our point here, we’ll seize elaboration and let the photographs speak.”
