    If grandmothers around the world had a rallying cry, it would probably sound something like “You need to eat!”

    Photographer Gabriele Galimberti’s grandmother said something similar to him before one of his many globetrotting work trips. To ensure he had at least one good meal, she prepared for him a dish of ravioli before he departed on one of his adventures.  

    “In that occasion I said to my grandma ‘You know, Grandma, there are many other grandmas around the world and most of them are really good cooks,” Galimberti wrote via email. “I’m going to meet them and ask them to cook for me so I can show you that you don’t have to be worried for me and the food that I will eat!’ This is the way my project was born!”

    The project, “Delicatessen With Love”, took Galimberti to 58 countries where he photographed grandmothers with both the ingredients and finished signature dishes.

    He acted as photographer and stylist during each shoot with the grandmothers, taking a portrait of both the women and the food they made for him.

  6. LIBYA & BANANAS

    JEEZ LARK
    LIBYA IS IN TURMOIL
    AND YOU POST BANANAS

    I am just a really terrible person, I guess. Highly insensitive and criminally ignorant.

    Honestly, I don’t know what all to say about it. World issues never get the care/attention they warrant. Every human life is valuable, but we are largely concerned with our own. America can’t be the World Police Force, but it should at least take a stand. People will be angry either way. People will just continue being ignorant. People will just keep being people.

    As much as people insist that every person can make a difference, I just can’t help feeling that my word will not do much to stop a dictator in his tracks. My awareness will not turn the tide.

    I hope for the world’s sake that the number of me’s doing absolutely nothing is greatly outnumbered by those doing at least something, but even knowing I should take a stand or make a change, I still continue to do nothing. I am aware but immobile.
