About the series: Dreaming Food is a conceptual project about the hunger issue in India. Despite economic growth, a majority of the Indian population still lives in extreme poverty and disease. These pictures are taken in rural areas of Uttar Pradesh, one of the poorest states in India, where the conditions are worse than the cities and where close to 70% of India’s population still reside today. Alessio carried with him a table and some fake food, and told people to dream about food they would like to find on their table.
