Hungry Planet

Peter Menzel's wonderful 2005 book, Hungry Planet, shows photographs of families around the world posing with their food supply for a week. A less expensive softback version comes out in September. A selection of the photographs is on display at Time. These photographs carry a message for us. I fear it might be a reprimand.

Reprimand --- you bet! The way people in this country approach food (and just about everything else derived from our environment) is shameful. It's as if the air, land, plants, animals and everything in between exists solely for our use. This is not a sustainable approach and that is becoming more obvious with each passing day.

Sounds like an interesting book... By the way, please note that I've tagged you. It's a fun way to help each other out and learn more about each other. Hope you participate.
