"Some 1.8 million Georgians currently live below the federal poverty level. Despite these large numbers, too often the plight of the most unfortunate among us is hidden or simply ignored. That's why St. Vincent de Paul Georgia has launched "Profiles in Poverty," a photography exhibit that chronicles the plight of Georgia’s most vulnerable populations. The Kickstarter-funded exhibit features photos from the state’s most talented photojournalists, including John Glenn, David Tulis, Joeff Davis, Stephen Morton, Chris Hunt, Tim Redman and more. The exhibit depicts the issues affecting the poor, including homelessness, hunger, healthcare accessibility, homebound seniors and unemployment. Despite the seriousness of the subject matter, the exhibit captures the indomitable spirit of many in tough situations, their moments of hope in the midst of despair. The gallery will be on display at Colony Square for the month of August. We invite you to the opening reception event on Tuesday, August 5 at 5:00-7:30 p.m."
