World Food

When I first travelled, I wasn't obsessed with food, it just happened. I soon started to realise I had been missing out, on all these new exotic foods, that were fresh and full of flavor. I wanted to try everything and some of the best foods were found at street stalls.
Learning the names of different food soon interested me so much, that I started taking photos. 

The reason I'm so drawn to food as a subject is because of its ability to connect each and every one of us. It forces us to gather at least once a day and share a moment together around a table, over a drink, at a counter. It peels away our differences and gives us a commonality.

No matter where I've been in the world, street food has given me the opportunity to see food being cooked and to try what I like the look of. I always make a point of stopping at random food stalls and markets in any city or village I'm in and this is where the everyday people gather.  An added bonus is when I stay with a family and they cook a traditional meal and the whole family joins in. 

Its food and the connections with it, the farmers who grow the food, the market stalls, the street stalls and mothers/wives who cook with love for their families. (Bygone scene's you don't see very often, in the Western world.) It's not just about food on a plate, for me, it's also about everything around.
