Kyle was awarded 2nd place for the Global Perspectives Photo Contest at Tufts University in the category of Comparative Global Humanities
I chose this photo for Comparative Global Humanities because my discussion with these two food vendors highlighted the similarities that existed amongst their vastly different cultures. The man on the left is an immigrant from Thailand, while the man on the right is an immigrant from Italy. The countries and cuisines are vastly different, as Italy’s staple food is pasta, while Thailand’s staple food is rice. However, despite these culinary differences, these two men from different cultures were unified by their love for fish, and their love in providing this unifying global food to the London public. In effect, this image also visualizes the similarities that these men have despite their backgrounds through their synchronized physical movements and facial expressions.
