A powerful and extraordinary series of sixty photographs and profiles by Pulitzer Prize-winning photojournalist Renée C. Byer, whose work illuminates the human faces of people who live in extreme poverty around the world. Travelling to 10 countries on four continents, Byer sought out individuals and families on the brink of survival – living on about one U.S. dollar each day.
