    DescriptionIn this collection of photojournalism from Bennetton's groundbreaking Colors magazine, stories of very human suffering are told through the hardhitting images of James Mollison, one of the great masters of documentary photography. In 2002 Mollison and journalist Amy Flanagan traveled to Afghanistan, Cambodia, Sierra Leone, and Guinea to visit projects supported by the United Nations World Food Program. Hunger is what they saw: intense images that represent the 800 million poor people around the world who live with hunger every day.The people in Hunger are the forgotten ones. Their plight may not be dramatic enough to make the news, but this doesn't mean that their lives are not in danger, that they don't exist.The UNWFP welcomes the publication of Hunger as part of its ongoing work to highlight the situation of the world's hungry. A percentage of the proceeds from this book will be donated to the UNWFP.

    Description for reader
    "Hunger" è un libro sugli 800 milioni di poveri che in tutto il mondo convivono ogni giorno con l'assillo della fame. Non i casi urgenti, ma tutte quelle persone per cui la vita ruota unicamente intorno alla ricerca del prossimo pasto. Grazie agli aiuti alimentari avranno la possibilità di fare qualcosa della propria vita. La certezza di poter mangiare ti permette di poter pensare ad altro: come imparare un mestiere, andare a scuola o mettere su un'attività. Insomma, continuare a vivere. "Hunger" porta alla ribalta queste persone dimenticate. La loro situazione non è così disperata da fare notizia, ma ciò non toglie che stiano rischiando la vita. E non significa che non esistano.
