What the World Eats

While some photographers have an affinity for shooting food, California-based photojournalist Peter Menzel takes a different approach. Menzel, known for his coverage of scientific and technological subjects, focuses less on the food in this series, but rather the larger scale of what we consume. Documented in his book Hungry Planet: What the World Eats, Menzel chronicles what a week of groceries looks like around the world. Simply fascinating.
