ABOUT THE BOOK ABOUT THE BOOK
Synopsis

Synopsis

Fragile is the documentation of life stories in sixty-five countries. It is about personal accounts, some successful, some shattering. The book is an effort to move intellectual discussions to face emotional realities. It is one man's attempt to bring this reality to those who may be motivated to affect change.

It is difficult to write a book about so much that is wrong in the world—the stark truth may cause many readers to turn away, but if stories are sugar-coated, the truth becomes distorted. There is a fine balance between suffering and solutions.

With more than 440 color photographs, Fragile portrays the challenges of life for some four billion people on our planet. Yet it is their perseverance and determination that allows for hope, but it is a hope that can only be realized from action.
