Peter Menzel and Faith D’Aluisio set out to explore just how diverse the eating habits around the globe are, and published a photo album with their discoveries, called the Hungry Planet. The authors visited 30 families in 24 countries, each time photographing them at home, shopping at the market and surrounded by their weekly food purchases. Over 600 meals in countries from Chad to China reveal completely different stories: while some families don’t go without 6 gallons of Coca-Cola a week, others got to hunt down a seal to feed their kids. How would your diet look, if captured in this album?

A portfolio by Erik Johansson, photographer and retoucher from Sweden, must be one of the strongest contemporary examples of fine retouching. Erik creates incredible fantasy worlds that are at the same time wildly surreal photo, yet so masterfully done that you almost start believing them: “Although one photo can consist hundreds of layers I always want it to look like it could have been captured,” he says. Brilliant work!
Canadian artist, known by his Roadsworth nickname, creates witty street art around Montreal that are more than just mere attempts to liven up the public space. It started as his manifesto in support for more bicycle lanes and respect for cyclists in 2001, and even had the guy arrested in 2004. Luckily, due to strong public support, Roadsworth was released. Since then the artist has been receiving numerous commissions for his work and continued to draw attention to bicycle lanes by applying his creative stencils.
