Breaking Bread


In my eyes, the act of breaking bread, in the simplest form, is an offering. It’s an invitation for discussion, an act of camaraderie, a notion of harmony. Bread is an often-overlooked part of one’s meal, sometimes an expectation for many diners. Yet, it’s often the one element that everyone shares. With this first set of photos, I wanted to show that even the simplest dish could act as a common ground between two individuals. No matter what the individuals order—and no matter their beliefs—their ability to break bread together, to pick from the same loaf, offers hope that they can find common ground elsewhere, too.
