I love photography projects that explore different cultures of the world—like Julian Germain’s photos of classrooms from various countries, or Jan Banning’s photos of bureaucrats’ work desk. James Mollison’s photos make make us wonder where children’s sleep, or what they eat (photographed by Hannah Whitaker), or what they play with (photographed by Gabriele Galimberti).
This time Italian photographer Gabriele Galimberti seeks out grandmothers and their love for good cooking. For two years Gabriele visited countless sweet grandmas from dozens of different countries to sample their favorite dishes. He had moose steak in Alaska, caterpillars in Malawi, hot spicy curry in India, shark soup in the Philippines, and many, many more exotic dishes. “I liked 90 percent of the recipes in the book,” he told Decisive Cravings.
