Hungry Planet – 30 families and 24 countries

Hungry Planet - 30 families and 24 countries

Peter Menzel traveled the world, passed through 24 countries and found 30 families. With each of them, she did the same thing: she grouped a mother, father and children in a photo around the equivalent of all meals a week.
You can imagine a little bit of the scene, especially if you watched “You are what you eat” on GNT. Unlike the TV show, this series by the American photojournalist resulted in an award-winning book that makes us rethink some ways.
Hungry Planet – What the World Eats, published in 2006, still presents questions that we are, unfortunately, used to. Social inequalities appear in a simple and clear way. By placing the weekly expenses of a family of people next to the photo that illustrates the data and, shortly thereafter, presenting another completely different family, both culturally and economically, Menzel and his wife, Faith D’Aluisio, pose the question in table. How much is enough for you?
After viewing the photos, it is worth stopping and thinking about the weekly expenses with food. Is everything really necessary?
