When Did I See You Hungry?
by Gerard Thomas Straub
When Did I See You Hungry? is a photographic and textual meditation on the plight of the poor. The book, through the interweaving of dramatic and deeply emotional photographs, aphorisms, short essays and stories, plus quotations on poverty from saints and noted spiritual writers from many different faiths, documents the life of the poorest of the poor in United States, Canada, Mexico, Italy, India, Jamaica, the Philippines, and Kenya. Photographs from the book were published in The New York Times.
“A beautiful and wrenching meditation on the poor…comprised of Straub’s 250 striking and very intimate black-and-white photographs and his compelling words.”
