It seems as a people, we have a fascination with photographing our food. Some of us spend more time staging and photographing than we do actually eating.  From Henry’ Hargreaves’ series of back stage food riders, to looking on Instagram, we cant help but document what we consume.

Photographer Peter Menzel started this intriguing series of one weeks of groceries from around the world, taking traditional food photography to a much larger scale. Take a look and when you’re planning your next vacation or visit, consider what’s for dinner.
