Nourishment. A simple necessity that I often take for granted. This series was created in 2011 upon hearing the staggering news of the severe drought in the Horn of Africa. Having never been truly hungry, I could not begin to grasp walking miles on end in search of food and water. More than 12 million lives were threatened as families traveled long distances (sometimes 10 to 15 days) in search of food.
