Each photograph comes complete with information about the harvest of the food. The Vienna-based photographer details the exact location, time of year, and cultivation method used for each produce. He also examines how much energy and water goes into each harvest in terms of the transportation method and distance, the water used, and the entire carbon footprint. The result is a haunting series of images that reminds us that wasted food in reality is not so beautiful.
