Shirtless American Men Compared With Their Counterparts From Other Countries
Artist and researcher Nickolay Lamm has some new work that is a simple mix of research and visualization combined into one.
In this new series of work, "What Does the Average American Man Look Like Compared to Other Countries?", he shows how shirtless Americans look when standing next to people from other countries.
Comparing the body mass indexes (BMI) of men from the US, Japan, the Netherlands and France, based on government data from each of the countries, he created a digital rendering of men from each country standing next to each other.
The average middle-aged man in the US has a BMI of 29, while in Japan, men have an average of a 23.7 BMI.
Take a look at Lamm's work below:
