How much food could you buy per day if you were living at the poverty line? In the U.S., that might equal one live lobster, two whole pomegranates or 39 Oreos. In Thailand, three fried fish. And in Brazil, you could have just part of watermelon.
Photographer Stefen Chow and economist Lin Hui-Yi ask us to confront these food choices in their ongoing project The Poverty Line. They visually represent hypothetical food options for someone in poverty with the concept of “One Frame. One Day. One Person.”
