Only in Museum #8

Often when we go to the museums, we just go through exhibits, sometimes read about them and then forget. But sometimes there are exhibits that provoke you to think. I went to this very interesting museum – Brot und Kunst (Bread and Art) this summer in Ulm, Germany. One very interesting exhibit for me there was this series of photos titled “How Humans Eat” by Peter Menzel, taken in the year 2000, showing the food an average family eats, across several countries. The countries represented are from left to right – Germany, Mongolia, USA, Chad, China, Bhutan, India, Japan, Greenland, Mexico, Ecuador and Mali.

It has been exhibited in other places too and you can find it by the title “Hungry Planet – What the World Eats”.

I wish I had taken better photos of the photos, but if this has piqued your curiosity, then check out Peter Menzel’s website itself.

Wishing you a Merry Christmas 🎄.

Would be great if you would join the “Only in Museum” series by posting something you found catching your eye in one of your visits to the museum. Then create a pingback to this post by including the link to my post in yours. You can also give the link to your post in the comments section below. Also, tagging the post with “Only in Museum” and “OiM” would help all readers find these posts easily.

In this blog, I focus on sharing some of the photographs that I capture, often during my travels but also in the everyday life. If you’d like to read about my travels, you can find the stories on this blog – Reflections on the River.
