A poor man crossing a pedestrian lane in Quiapo , Philippines.This may be the worst ailment of the world in terms of poverty , lack of healthy lifestyle and food. I can almost see his ribs and not to mention the bruises on his skin. I don't know how to react when I saw him limping while crossing on the lane.

This image was taken during my documentary in Manila City.

    A haunting face. An emaciated body. Spindly arms. Figures like phantoms in the background. It stirs my conscience since there's nothing I can do about it. This single picture relates volumes on what is wrong with society.

    Wow this is so sad. I hate that there are people starving in this world and governments just don't care to help them.

    This is very surreal. I agree with Carl. The people are a ghostly blur and he is well lit and is spot lighted for optimum shocking impact. One has to wonder how he can even walk.
