About the Book



As globalization alters our relationship to the world around us, photographer Gregg Segal has embarked on a world-wide project asking kids of many nations to take his "Daily Bread" challenge, wherein they keep a detailed journal of everything they eat in a week--which Segal then stages as an elaborate portrait of the child surrounded by all the meals and snacks they consumed. The colorful and hyper-detailed results tell a unique story of multiculturalism and how we nourish ourselves at the dawn of the 21st century.



Book Synopsis



As globalization alters our relationship to food, photographer Gregg Segal has embarked on a global project asking kids from around the world to take his Daily Bread challenge. Each child keeps a detailed journal of everything they eat in a week, and then Segal stages an elaborate portrait of them surrounded by the foods they consumed. The colorful and hyper-detailed results tell a unique story of multiculturalism and how we nourish ourselves at the dawn of the 21st century.

From Los Angeles to Sao Paulo, Dakar to Hamburg, Dubai to Mumbai we come to understand that regardless of how small and interconnected the world seems to become each year, diverse pockets of traditional cultures still exist on each continent, eating largely the same way they have been for hundreds of years. It is this rich tapestry that Segal captures with care and appreciation, showcasing the page-after-page charm of Daily Bread. Contrasted with the packaged and processed foods consumed primarily in developed nations, questions about health and sustainability are raised and the book serves as a catalyst for consideration of our status quo.

There's an old adage, The hand that stirs the pot rules the world. Big Food is stirring the pot for children all over the world. Nonetheless, there are regions and communities where slow food will never be displaced by junk food, where home-cooked meals are the bedrock of family and culture, and where love and pride are expressed in the aromas of stews and curries.
