According to a UN study one third of the World’s food goes to waste – the largest part thereof in the industrialized nations of the global north. Equally, 925 million people around the World are threatened by starvation. This series by photographer Klaus Pichler titled “One Third” describes the connection between individual wastage of food and globalized food production. Rotting food, arranged to elaborate still lifes, portrays an abstract picture of the wastage of food whilst the accompanying texts take a more in depth look at the root of this issue. “One Third” goes paste the sell by date in order to document the full dimension of the global food waste.
