Photo blogging

You are what you eat or do you eat what you are? 30 families. 24 countries. 600 meals. Photographer Peter Menzel photographed the weekly food intake of families around the world. Each photo depicts a family at home posing with a typical week’s worth of groceries (paid for by the photographer). Viewing the series of photos cannot help but raise questions about culture, politics and world health. Photographs from “Hungry Planet.”

Faster than a speeding bullet. Ultra-high-speed photography requires a powerful flash unit and equipment to set it off at just the right moment. A desire to see things blown to pieces and a very brave hand model doesn’t hurt either. Here are “frozen moment” shots of, well … shots … and the objects they obliterate.
