Art and Hunger

I heard this story on NPR about a man named Michael Nye, who did an art collection based on Hunger. It was amazing to hear the stories that people who experienced real hunger went through, and then when I got home, I was able to view the images that went with them. He would spend several days with his subjects, interviewing and taking photographs, then he’d make a small short audio clip and share an image that went with it. It was very touching.

It was very moving to hear the stories of these people, and amazing how he used photography and journalism to present it. He is a lawyer by trade.

I highly recommend looking at his web exhibits.

One Response to Art and Hunger

  1. Very moving. I don't think I've ever felt hunger for an extended period of time, except when by choice for fasting. I am afraid we will see many hungry like we've never before seen sometime in the future. I am doing everything I can to get a years' supply of food for my family, though I am very far away from that goal, because I couldn't bear to have to have my children go hungry. I figure there is no excuse for not preparing now, while food is readily available.
