A richly produced new edition of evocative black-and-white and color photographic portraits of children in war-torn countries. Through the light in their eyes, Bobby Sager captures the human spirit's power to overcome hardship.
The photographer, entrepreneur, and philanthropist documents his family's relief work overseas and world events as they unfold post 9/11. Beginning in 2001, Bobby, Elaine, and their two young children lived among earthquake victims in Pakistan, former child soldiers in Rwanda, and Tibetan monks in India in order to set up aid programs.
Using his camera to begin a friendly dialogue, especially with the children he met, Bobby placed himself "eyeball to eyeball" with his subjects and unlocked their universal expressions of dignity, ingenuity, and hope.
