The Value of a Dollar (19 pics)

Posted in PICTURES       12 Oct 2010       16093       16

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.

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.
