Between 2019 and 2020, I photographed a long-term study
on food sell-by dates for Greenpeace Magazine.
The result of the laboratory tests was as to be expected:
food usually lasts much longer than its expiry date suggests.
Based on this story the magazine developed a recurring consumer piece dealing with topics related to sustainable consumption. Each of these texts is accompanied by two images that visualize different aspects of the respective subject.
The series is ongoing.
