What the world eats in pictures

Par défaut

This photographic report exposes the proliferation of processed foods in the western diet and in the diets of many developing countries the world over.

These images are from the book ‘Hungry Planet: What the World Eats’ by Peter Menzel and Faith D’Aluision.

It’s an inspired idea, to better understand the human diet, explore what culturally diverse families eat for a week. Their portraits feature pictures of each family with a week’s worth of food purchases. We soon learn that diet is determined by largely uncontrollable forces like poverty, conflict and globalization, which can bring change with startling speed.

Thus cultures can move, sometimes in a single jump, from traditional diets to the vexed plenty of global-food production. People have more to eat and, too often, eat more of nutritionally questionable food. And their health suffers.

  1. Wow, I am surprised about how little water is being consumed in almost every family. The importance for water is tremendously underestimated..
