This week I found some really cool photographs by Peter Menzel, picturing families around the world with a week's worth of their groceries.

It's pretty interesting to see what people are eating, how much packaging is used, and how much it costs. The family from Italy had a lot of bread compared to the family from Ecuador having a lot of bananas.

It's also nice to know these people were willing to let someone into their house for art's sake.

I found these truly fascinating too, Simon. The contrast in amounts. And the differences in natural vs. processed got to me. The images have stayed with me through the year(s) since this was made.
