I am a sucker for photography, especially since they can convey so much in one shot. Ansel Adams once said, "a true photograph need not be explained, nor can it be contained in words". So true.
In relation to Bread for the World and the issues of hunger and poverty in particular, photography is an important tool in bringing an otherwise distant audience closer to the real-life situations they work towards alleviating: HIV/AIDS, famine, conflict and often unseen domestic and international poverty.
Check out these sites for some great photography and the issues surrounding them:
