The Value of a Dollar (19 pics)

Posted in Pictures   12 Oct 2010   / 14907 views

When Jonathan Blaustein purchased 10 early-season organic blueberries for $1, he was a little upset by this price, because six weeks earlier he had purchased 17 organic blueberries from Chile for the same amount of money. And those blueberries from Chile were from 800 miles away but were half the cost of California berries.

Eventually, after seeing many different menus around the world with various dollar-priced meals, photographer Mr. Blaustein, 36, decided to pursue a project “The Value of a Dollar”.

So, what food can you buy if you only have $1 in your wallet? See these photos taken by Mr. Blaustein and find out the answer.

 

Shurfine flour

A double cheeseburger from McDonald's

Organic grapefruit from a natural food store

Conventional grapefruit from Supersave

Tomatillos from Mexico

Candy necklaces from China

Shufrine white bread

Potted meat food product

Organic basmati rice from Whole Foods

Tea biscuits from Spain

Shrimp-flavored ramen noodles

Beef shank from Supersave

Pork floss, or rousong

Fenugreek seeds from India

Saffron

Side salad with ranch dressing from Burger King

Escargot in a can from Indonesia

Early-season organic blueberries from California

Dried smelt

You can also get a handjob from Lisa at the Williamsburg airport, 2nd floor mensroom. With tip, it's actually $1.75 and worth every penny, especially if she's been drinking all day.
