To demonstrate how we are the reflection of what we eat, photographer Gregg Segal traveled the world to portray children from different cultures surrounded by what they eat. For 3 years, he visited 9 countries: the United States, India, Malaysia, Germany, France, Italy, Senegal, the United Arab Emirates and Brazil. And all of his images came together in a book called: Daily Bread: What Kids Eat Around the World.
"I focused on the kids because eating habits start very early, and if they aren't corrected by age 9 or 10, it's going to be much more difficult when they're older," explained Gregg.
In total, Segal worked with 60 children, of whom 52 are in his book. “I started with my son and his friends from school in Altadena. Then I expanded it and wanted to make it more global. I wanted to represent the diversity of diets at each site and reflect whether there was obesity in the country, for example. ”
I am a dreamer and in my dreams I believe that a better world is possible, that no one knows more than anyone, we all learn from everyone. I love gastronomy, numbers, teaching and sharing all the little I know, because by sharing I also learn. "Let's all go together from foundation to success"
