The Photographic Newsletter on European Matters #5/23: FOOD
We all need food. But eating does not merely entail a primitive action of devouring or consuming, of providing fuel for a body that would otherwise become evermore fatigued. Eating is not just physiological. It is social, personal, emotional, cultural and political.
As our planet’s population is growing while its resources are decreasing (after all, we should not be surprised that industrial and animal agriculture produce more than 65% of the world’s nitrous oxide emissions), we are faced with a pressing reminder: That we must act and come up with new solutions when it comes to the ways we produce and consume food. With a natural ecosystem that has become more fragile than ever, we might not have a choice but to embrace new experimental forms of growing and eating food.
