Food Photography Philanthropy

An eye-opening project by a globe-trotting photography duo puts subjects side-by-side with their daily food intake...

Staff Writer

Photographers Peter Menzel and Faith D’Aluisio have traveled the world meeting people of all creeds and colour and during this journey they went about asking people to pose in front of their daily diets. The photo journal shows an interesting comparison of calorie intake from all walks of life, where a rickshaw driver from India takes in more calories than a California resident and an Egyptian camel broker eats more than a Chicago taxi driver. Check out the photos of people and their food below:
