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.
