Peter Menzel is an internationally known photojournalist who writes many of his books in collaboration with his wife, Faith D'Aluisio. Titles of some include "Material World: A Global Family Portrait," "Man Eating Bugs: The Art and Science of Eating Insects" (the writing of which required the two to actually devour bugs), and "Women in the Material World."
