California photojournalist Peter Menzel has published a new book compiled of 80 portraits and essays of people and the food that fuels them.

These images, taken from over 30 countries and a dozen U.S. States, include images of shopping, cooking and eating. Some of Menzel's most striking images include an Egyptian camel broker, a Japanese sumo wrestler, a Sudanese refugee in Chad, a Tibetan yak herder, a Bangladeshi factory seamstress, an Arctic hunter, an Indian Hindu sadhu, a Namibian diamond polisher, and a wounded Iraq war veteran.

The centerpiece of each photoessay is a portrait of the subject with that day's worth of food, a text about daily life, and an exhaustively researched food list detailing every item consumed, along with the total calorie count.

The 335-color page book retails for $40.
