Reinhard Hunger’s photos are the ultimate irony – on one hand reminding us to watch what we eat, on the other hand tempting us with mozzarella and meatballs.
The photos were taken a while back for a New York Times story about how a study of how a low-calorie diet could prevent heart disease and reduce the aging process. The story itself is a bit of a bummer (What, you mean donuts aren’t low calorie?) but the photos that Hunger shot almost make up for it. Hunger’s photos show all kinds of creative ways to count calories: an abacus with Brussels sprouts and olives for beads, a brie cheese circle chart and a graph made of bread slices.
