From a photographer who’s spent the last five years on the Pine Ridge Reservation: “I think I honestly want these photos to hurt the viewer.” (H/T Prof. Newquist.)
And while it doesn’t address this level of poverty, it is still an appropriate time to remind you to read John Scalzi’s “Being Poor.”
Poverty is like punishment for a crime you didn’t commit.
