Dat wat we eten.

Fotograaf Peter Menzel reisde rond de wereld, fotografeerde verschillende families en dat wat zij zich per week aan voedsel (kunnen) veroorloven. Logischerwijs verschilt het dan nogal of je in North Carolina, Mexico, Equador, Japan of een tentenkamp ergens in Afrika woont. Wel mooie confronterende beelden, zeker met onderschrift.
