SCHOOL LUNCH is a visual essay of contemporary student life, created by drawing, on-site, in actual educational settings. Students’ emotional attitudes are explored in the shared experience of school lunch. SCHOOL LUNCH underlines perceptions which affirm cultural identity, brings together ideas espousing societal concerns and encourages a belief in the quality of human spirit
