EAT The World Series
'EAT The World Series' is an active documentation process of the oral histories of migrant women from all over the world, and vastly different cultures, who find themselves in the city of Umeå as visitors, students, refugees, housewives and professionals. Food, recipes and nostalgia are the portable elements of their heritage & their origins that they carry with them. The project captures these women in photographs, each with a story to tell and a recipe to share from their homeland.
