Dignity In Poverty
Photograph - Prints On Demand
PD: Reproduction of 1880s photograph by Jacob Riis: b. 1849 d. 1914. Danish-American social documentary photographer, and social reformer. This photograph of a poor women holding an infant trying to muster a little dignity for the photgrapher while living in a dank dark cellar. Hard to look at but a grim reminder of what millions of human beings through either fate or circumstance face and endure every day. Poverty: the result of injustice, squalor, overpopulation, oppression, military rule, torture, terror, greed, all ancient evils that feed on each other in never ending cycles. Samuel Johnson said it best: " Poverty is the great enemy of human happiness. It destroys liberty, makes some virtues impracticable, and all virtues extremely difficult ". Any and all proceeds from this reproduction shall be donated 100% to ( CARE - fighting global poverty ).
