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.
