Hartmann also shows us the bread these individuals work so hard to earn. In Our Daily Bread / Centralia, Kansas (1956), he focuses in on a woman’s hands as she kneads dough on a flour-dusted table. A woman in Ashkelon, Israel pulls a cart full of loaves along a dirt clearing, a young boy by her side. In marked contrast to the former two scenes, Hartmann captures a woman from behind, contemplating row upon row of shelves stuffed with packaged bread crumbs, cakes, and loaves in an American supermarket. All of these photographs could be said to lead to another—of a spare table, set with three soup bowls and two half loaves of bread. It recalls The Last Supper and suggests the deep spiritual resonances of this ancient staple.
