Here’s a short bio about their work:
Peter Menzel is a freelance photojournalist known for his coverage of international feature stories on science and the environment. His award-winning photographs have been published in GEO, Stern, Le Figaro, Der Spiegel, Paris Match, Focus, Muy Interesante, El Pais, National Geographic, Smithsonian, the New York Times Magazine, and Time. He has received many World Press and Picture of the Year awards. Faith D’Aluisio is a former award-winning television news producer. She is the editor and lead writer for the book-publishing imprint Material World Books.
Together, the team of Menzel and D’Aluisio has authored several best-selling books, including volumes that have given the world iconic photos and penetrating stories of people, the diets they eat, and their daily lives spanning diverse cultures and environments. Their book Hungry Planet: What the World Eats (Material World Books, Ten Speed Press, 2005) is a compelling around-the-world exploration of daily life in 24 countries, detailing weekly groceries and food costs via photos and thought-provoking interviews, earning for Peter and Faith the coveted James Beard Best Book Award in 2006. Their next volume What I Eat: Around the World in 80 Diets (Material World Books, 2010) is a photographic journey that brings together the personal lives and typical daily diets of 80 individuals across 30 countries into focus, both visually and emotionally.
Through their evocative narrative style and exceptional photojournalism, Peter Menzel and Faith D’Aluisio shine a beam of light into the pantries of ordinary individuals throughout our world. In doing so, they capture globally the spirit of public health nutrition.

Curator/photographer Lynn Silverman presents the book, Evidence, regarded as a seminal collection of photographs edited by Larry Sultan and Mike Mandel, and a video of its pages. Silverman discovered the book in a bookstore in the 1970’s. It ignited a new understanding of the photographic image as document and its relationship to narrative leading her to a practice committed to conceptual photography.
