  • From the Publisher
February 24, 2014
This col­lec­tion brings togeth­er the best of Eric Gre­it­ens’ award-win­ning inter­na­tion­al human­i­tar­i­an pho­tog­ra­phy work with a strik­ing series of essays. Engag­ing pho­tographs from Rwan­da, Cam­bo­dia, Alba­nia, Mex­i­co, India, the Gaza Strip, Croa­t­ia, and Bolivia are com­bined with bold, intel­li­gent essays on Strength, Pity, Dig­ni­ty, Courage, Faith, Time, Hope, and Com­pas­sion. Though the pho­tographs for this book were tak­en in dif­fer­ent coun­tries and amid dif­fer­ent strug­gles, a com­mon theme emerges: even in times of great hard­ship and in the face of great evil, peo­ple with strength and com­pas­sion can live with courage.
