Photojournalist Peter Menzel and his wife and writer Faith D'Aluisio, from California, spent three years travelling to 30 countries visiting countless people to document what they eat over the course of a single day. The result is a fascinating study of people and their diets. Menzel’s long research culminated in a stunning photobook entitled "What I Eat: Around The World In 80 Diets" where Menzel featured 80 profiles including such diverse types as a Japanese sumo wrestler, a Massai herdswoman, an Arctic hunter, an Indian Hindu sadhu, a Sudanese refugee in Chad, a Tibetan yak herder, a Bangladeshi factory seamstress, and a wounded Iraq war veteran, among others. Each image is accompanied by a detailed breakdown of the meals and brief essays on food politics and cultural obsessions with diet.
