Photographer Peter Menzel has a habit of displaying people’s lives in illuminating ways. Previously we highlighted a project in which he went around the world asking families to pose in front of their house with all of their stuff. He now has a book, Hungry Planet, featuring photographs of families posting with a week’s worth of food. It tells a fascinating qualitative and quantitative story of cultural gastronomical difference.
