PeterMenzelHeaderPhotographer Peter Menzel wanted to answer the question, “What does a week of groceries look to the average family?” Armed with his camera, Menzel visited one ‘typical family’ in 20 different countries. It is interesting to see, with a few exceptions, that the quantity of food does not seem to vary too much, but the variety of food is vastly different in each country. It is a great way to see the different culture’s influence on the products and food the consumers buy.
