Photographer's Note

Let this be my little protest against fast food. I believe fast food to be one of the major plagues of western civilization. It is responsible, more than anything really, for the huge problem of obesity in the western world. Burgers, fries, sodas..a calorie/fat bomb with little nutritional value. And unortunately, it is also spreading to Asia. In Korea KFC, Burger King, McD's, Pizza Hut are establishing their own armies of junkies addicted to the stuff they sell. This is bad.

An anonymous addict (?) ready to buy a meal from Burger King. What will she have?

Edit:

I just found an article in a major Korean newspaper regarding fast food restauurants. Here is a small part:

"But fast food chains, whose public images have been tarred by an association with obesity, are closing down in Korea.
Lotteria, which had 900 locations in July 2003, now has 810. And McDonald's, which had 350 stores in Korea in October 2002, now has just 328. The U.S.-based burger chain said it has no plans to open any new Korean stores this year. "

Interesting.
