Carrot Eye Chart

Your mom probably told you that eating carrots would improve your vision. That turned out to be a clever lie instigated by the British during World War II to cover up their new radar system that helped Royal Air Force's pilots in spotting enemy planes. The British intelligence spread a rumor that pilots were fed carrots to help improve their vision - and the public bought it!

To poke fun at this carrot myth, photographer Henry Hargreaves and food stylist Nicole Heffron collaborated to create this fun little project: the Carrot Eye Chart.

Thanks Henry!
