What I Eat
Dec 19, 2012 — Jun 10, 2013Free - Located within Theory Eatery Space
Ever wondered what a boy in Bangladesh eats for lunch? How about a lifeguard in Australia or a monk in Tibet?
Based on Faith D’Aluisio and Peter Menzel’s wildly popular book, What I Eat: Around the World in 80 Diets, OMSI’s new photography exhibit invites you to explore what the food we eat says about how we live and who we are. The exhibit features portraits of 20 people from around the world and the food they eat in the course of a day – right down to serving size and caloric value. Ranging from 800 to 8400 calories, fresh ingredients to processed staples, rich and hearty to lean and light, the differences in a single day’s worth of food provide a glimpse into the way people (live and eat) all over the globe. The exhibit is presented in two installments, so look for the second half in March!
