YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT: A PHOTO SERIES OF PEOPLE AND THEIR DAILY MEALS

Featured image: Noolkisaruni Tarakuai, Third Wife of a Maasai Chief – 800 Calories

Husband and wife photographers Peter Menzel and Faith D’Aluisio traveled the world to shoot this fascinating series, meeting a broad variety of people and learning about their lifestyles.

Meeting these people, they were asked to pose alongside an average day’s worth of meals. The great differences in food choices and caloric intake is pretty interesting and in some cases quite surprising. Take a look below. Via
