Exploding populations, water shortages, pollution, environmental destruction, illiteracy, food shortages, and famine are all realities that affect Asia to various degrees today. Yet, when the Japanese photo-journalist Hiroji Kubota was approached to produce a book of photographs documenting Asia from the perspective of food, he knew little about these problems. Upon learning that every day about 35,000 infants in Asia lose their lives due to malnutrition, he decided to accept the assignment without a moment's hesitation.
