Disgust
We all know the stomach-churning feeling when finding rotten food in the fridge, eating something that tastes unpleasant or when stepping into something smelly on the street, usually resulting in a wrinkled nose and the urge to turn away.

As part of our Spotlight series on emotions, this selection of images from our archive explores the emotion of disgust, its causes and reactions.

As a biological and evolutionary contamination-avoidance mechanism, protecting us from eating poisonous things, it is one of the strongest emotions. We hope you can bear looking at our pictures of revulsion.
