Breakfasts from Around the World by Photographer Oliver Schwarzwald.
German photographer Oliver Schwarzwald recently did this series of photographs showcasing breakfasts eaten in different countries around the world. The series was shot for the German magazine Feld Homme and features the traditional English breakfast form the UK, coffee, croissant and cigarette for France and caviar on toast with vodka for Russia. And also the breakfasts from Sweden, USA and an international.
In one shoot he combined various food that could describe breakfasts in different countries. And looking in these photos we can easily guess what country he meant without reading titles.He’s done just that to a selection of breakfasts from around the world. It’s been 4 years now since I’ve been to England, but ah, seeing the above sure makes me miss a good cup of Grandma’s tea, fried egg, bangers & baked beans…good ol’ fashioned fry-up. Can you tell what countries the other breakfasts belong to?
