At first, photographers, Henry Hargreaves and Caitlin Levin were interested in investigating how history’s most notorious dictators ate and how they used food deprivation as a weapon to punish those who disobey them.
After starting the project, the two realized that hunger and the vast pain it causes is still very much a pervasive issue worldwide. They then decided to contrast what food is being eaten by the rich across the globe and with the poor consume.
In the picture, the tablecloth represents the meals eaten by the rich and the other side with just the bare table represent the diet of the poor.
