    This thought-provoking collection of portraits shines light on the similarities and the differences in the ways we approach and consume food.

    Each of the 25 photo essays in the exhibit includes a comprehensive list of every item that individual consumed during one particular — though not necessarily average — day, along with the total calorie count.
