As humans moved away from being hunters and gatherers, the production of food has been perfected into an art form over countless generations. Astrid’s work acknowledges how labour intensive it is to produce what we eat. However, in the Western world, the connection between food and nature seems to be getting lost.

The first country is Vietnam; Astrid is honouring micro food production households and features people who are physically involved in growing or producing food from their homes and gardens. Further images were taken in Senegal and in Bolivia, describing different cultural food heritage and products. As the project moved on, she made other discoveries. Whereas food production in third world countries is often based on tradition, in London it became a lifestyle choice.
