I saw some of these photos a few months ago in a Sunday newspaper supplement. These snapshots need very little introduction. They come from a book produced by Peter Menzel and since its publication the book has been talked a lot about in many magazines and newspapers.
The thing I also find humbling is to see the living spaces that some of these people occupy. It makes me realize for a moment how lucky I really am to be where I sit right now.
Some of the photos from “The Hungry Planet” by Peter Menzel are published in TIME magazine and are linked HERE
