About this title

Synopsis:

Perhaps best known for her photography of Tibet and its culture in exile, award-winner Alison Wright has traveled the world for more than two decades as a photojournalist. Working for children’s aid organizations such as UNICEF, Save the Children, CARE, and SEVA, she has dedicated herself to telling the stories of children in Asia, Africa, and Latin America. In Faces of Hope, Wright presents her finest photographs, showing the resolute spirit of these children in the face of poverty, famine, and conflict, and demonstrating how with education and opportunity they can become powerful assets to their struggling countries and to the world. In extended captions, Wright tells of her encounters with the children, detailing their cultural traditions, explaining their difficulties, and recounting their extraordinary lives.
