Art is not only a great photographer, he is a humanitarian whose compassion for the people he meets and photographs is unmistakable. In the past year, I’ve traveled with Art to a number of countries where HOPE International Development Agency works with communities struggling to lift themselves out of poverty. During these travels, and back at home, I have always been impressed by Art’s hunger and ability to connect deeply with people. For me, this is what makes his photographs powerful, and beautiful. Through Art’s lens, we have been able to show people what their support means to communities around the world. This is an incredible gift.
