Item description for Jarret Schecter: A Journey In Sight by Jarret Schecter...
Eight out of ten blind people live in the developing world, and the vast majority of this blindness is preventable. These facts constitute A Journey in Sight, a project by photographer Jarret Schecter who was astounded by the conditions he witnessed in Burkina Faso, one of the world's poorest countries. Here Schecter illuminates the link between poverty and blindness--40 million people suffer from preventable blindness that arises from Vitamin A deficiency, unsanitary conditions, minimal health care, and other issues. Presented are touching and heartfelt images of these persons in their habitats. But this isn't merely a journey into the world's less fortunate regions--a percentage of each sale of A Journey in Sight will be donated to Orbis, an organization that provides free or inexpensive eye treatment to people who needlessly suffer from preventable blindness.
