It saddens me to forward the news that our good friend and fellow photographer, Matt Quinn, has passed.
As some of you may know, he had been battling cancer for a while and was on his way to recovery.
Please take a moment to remember him in your prayers.

A street dweller at her toilette in Kolkata. She will probably sleep under a flyover and use the standpipe for washing herself and her clothes.

It's amazing how different levels of poverty are "socially accepted" in different parts of the world.
In my home country of Nicaragua, the poverty line was clearly demarcated. There is really no "middle class" as we know it here in the U.S., or in Britain, and sights like in this photo are commonplace.

Sadly this is the norm for so many parts of the world where so many live in the shadow of others. S-
