This latest work uses engaging visuals and text to show what eighty people in thirty different countries eat on an average day. The profiles run the gamut, ranging from an Egyptian camel broker, a Yemeni housewife, American model, a Chinese acrobat, and a wounded Iraq veteran. Each photoessay contains an image of the subject surrounded by the food he or she eats, along with detailed caloric information and a narrative about that person’s daily life.
