"Witness To Hunger"

Mariana Chilton, a professor and anthropologist at Drexel University's School of Public Health, gave digital cameras to 40 women who live in the ghetto of North Philadelphia. The simple idea evolved into "Witness of Hunger" an exhibit that will go on display December 11th at Drexel University in Philadelphia. The women, who were paid up to $125 dollars and allowed to keep the cameras, photographed the reality of their conditions. One of the participants is quoted below:

"My 4-year-old son saw a shot person and has prostitutes in his face," Tianna Gaines, 29, said in an Inquirer interview in her crowded apartment. "This is not The Cosby Show. That wasn't a stunt double dead in front of my son. I know a woman who sells her body to buy Pampers. This is the real world."

36 of the 40 participants report that they were raped as children or sexually abused by relatives. This the reality of urban living, trying to make something out of nothing and living to tell about it. Thanks to the Philadelphia Inquirer for a very compelling story about a tremendous exhibit.
