I picked up the Sunday Times Magazine yesterday and was shocked to find this photo of food being wasted (and I mean wasted!):
First, it’s an impressive photograph. It’s striking art, for sure.
But given that the Food Issue discusses how we should (re)value food, the photo on its cover has the wrong tone. I would have preferred some of the illustrations found inside the magazine.
There are three distinct covers, all shot by German photographer Martin Klimas. The other versions include an apple and a pumpkin being obliterated. For no apparent reason.
OK, fine, the photo alludes to the issue’s “Food Fights!” title. But that picture isn’t a fight, it’s a massacre.
I’m curious: What’s your take on the cover? Beautiful? Hideous? Both?
