Photo series brings attention to global food waste and starvation

    In the photo series, One Third, Austrian photographer Klaus Pichler, brings attention to the widespread waste of food in the face of global starvation.

    The images displayed show food in various stages of decay: maggot coated beef, slightly molding fruit and nearly unrecognizable eggs. Each abstract image is captioned with the ingredient’s place and method of production, transportation means and distance, carbon footprint, water requirement, and price.

    The purpose of the series as explained on Food Republic, is to bring attention to the hundreds of millions of people around the world who go hungry, while one third of the food produced globally, goes to waste.
