From "Sudan Famine" series by Tom Stoddart. This shouldn't even BE an issue. Most of the food produced in America is fed to livestock. A good portion of food in America is wasted beyond that (tossed from the plate, left to rot, "expired", etc)
One of the most evocative contemporary photography series I have seen in a while is Michael Wolf’s Tokyo Compression. The German shoots people in the subway trains of the Japanese capital. The result is breathtaking: an emotional collection of commuting individuals, with each portrait telling a unique story.
