On the 23rd of July, 3 days ago World Press Photo posted 5 photographs from a series called “Dreaming Food”. “Dreaming Food” was a conceptual project by Alessio Mamo, an Italian freelance photographer based in Catania, Sicily. The project was about the hunger issue in India. He went to Uttar Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh with a cheap satin tablecloth and 4 plates of fake thanksgiving food to click these photos that were supposed to somehow address the issue of food wastage during Christmas. This was meant to bring out a contrast with the use of a typical Western table with luxurious food in a poor context.
