Klaus Pichler draws attention to food waste with his photo series One Third, which juxtaposes the lovely staging of traditional still-life photography with disgusting mold and rot.

Based on the UN statistic that one-third of the world's food goes to waste, Pichler's series asks us to confront our personal food waste with these compelling photos. Pichler's website also contains information on each food item's cultivation or creation, how it was transported, and what its carbon footprint is.
