Across the globe, wealth inequality is a persistent problem. There are major economic gaps between the world’s poorest and richest countries, as well as income disparities within those countries.

So, last year, photographer Henry Hargreaves launched a photo series (called “Power Hungry”) to illustrate how wealth gaps impact people’s day-to-day lives. He used food as a vehicle to contrast the lifestyles of poor versus rich populations in various countries.

Before the launch of the series, Hargreaves told Vogue that the photos examine “the concept that the measure of a civilization is how it treats its weakest members.”
