Hungry Planet Photos

2007.Jun.10 Sunday

There’s a book out, and has been for awhile now, called Hungry Planet, by Peter Menzel and Faith D’Alusio. It’s a photo essay of families from around the world each seated around a table with a week’s worth of groceries. Time magazine has just published an online selection of fifteen of those photos along with a bit about each family. There’s something very telling about cultural differences, and not just in quantity of food, but in the selection of food, from places of relatively equal economic status where fresh foods are emphasized versus those where junk, fast, and pre-prepared food is. Just something to think about.
