I was about to apologize for the graphic imagery above, but thought better of it. To the meat eaters out there, this is what you eat. And to the vegetarians, surely it is better that the world sees what is on the dinner plate for what it really is?

When I wrote about Trace Ramsey of Cricket Bread's photo essay of a hog butchery workshop in New York, opinions were divided between those who saw it as an important step in understanding your food, through to those who viewed it as little different to any other kind of animal exploitation. But the discussion was an important one, so we thought we'd share some more of Trace's photos of the weekend event.
