Caught in the Act: Eating Lunch at Your Desk

Perhaps taking a nod from popular (though no longer active) Tumblr account Sad Desk Lunches, Brian Finke further “celebrates the sadness.” His “Desktop Dining” photo series is simple, but effective—and awkward. Some 30 photographs outline people who don’t have a decent work/life balance: typing with pizza dangling from their mouths, spooning soup as they’re on the phone, and one worker who has an impressive selection of hot sauces at his desk. It’s a funny but thoughtful series that serves as a good reminder that we should all get up, stretch our legs, and take a break. Read the interview with Finke at Wired.
