We absolutely love this here at SBSG HQ.
American freelance photojournalist Peter Menzel (he’s seriously talented having his work featured in the likes of National Geographic, Forbes, Fortune & Wire) which shows the quality and price of food in different countries of the weekly shop for the family.
What an unbelieveable journey it must have been to take all these photos, with all of these wonderful and hospitable families.
