A powerful collection of black-and-white photographs and inspirational text strikingly reveals the faces of the desperately poor throughout the world. Created by a Hollywood film producer turned documentary filmmaker who has chosen to devote his work to the world hunger cause, this dramatic and compassionate volume captures the plight of impoverished people in nations as diverse as the United States, Canada, Mexico, Italy, India, Jamaica, the Philippines, and Kenya. Accompanying this startling and disquieting series of intensely personal photographs are aphorisms; quotations from noted spiritual writers of different faiths; and statistics and short essays telling the poignant story of the homeless and the poor. Yet more than merely exposing just the agony of life in the slums, these profoundly passionate photographs open our eyes with wordless tenderness to the spirit and humanity of destitute people the world over, their hidden joy and uplifting will to survive. Graced with a foreword by best-selling author Murray Bodo, OFM.
