I was looking for an article to post, and this particular article caught my eye, one because the images
were not your usual beautiful pictures, but it depicts a personal story that can really put some things in
perspective in one’s own personal life. Looking at the photos you can really see the struggles that they
probably endure in their everyday life just by the emotion shown on the photos. The Photographer won the
Foto Visura Grant for Outstanding Personal Project and Outstanding Student Project.
