A powerful and extraordinary series of sixty photographs and profiles by Pulitzer Prize-winning photojournalist Renée C. Byer, whose work illuminates the human faces of people who live in extreme poverty around the world. Travelling to 10 countries on four continents, Byer sought out individuals and families on the brink of survival – living on about one U.S. dollar each day.
Renée C. Byer is best known for her in-depth work focusing on the disadvantaged and those who otherwise would not be heard. Her ability to produce photographs with profound emotional resonance and sensitivity earned her the Pulitzer Prize for feature photography in 2007 and dozens of national and international honours, including the World Understanding Award from Pictures of the Year International, and Pulitzer Finalist, in 2013. Her multimedia work garnered her two Emmy nominations for field producing and photography. Her images have been published in media outlets worldwide including Paris Match, TIME, Newsweek and National Geographic.
Alison Stieven-Taylor is an international photography commentator, journalist and educator. Her writing has appeared in publications including The Weekend Australian, World Press Photo Witness, and the French journal The Eye of Photography. She is also the publisher of the widely-read weekly blog Photojournalism Now. Alison has been a juror for numerous international photography festivals and awards including FotoEvidence Book Award, ANZ Photobook Awards, the Walkley Awards, Head On Photo Awards and the Indian Photography Festival. Alison is currently writing her PhD on photography and social change, and is a lecturer in media communications at Monash University (Melbourne).
