Exhibition Name:

40 Chances: Finding Hope in a Hungry World

Description: In this powerful exhibit featuring the photography of Howard G. Buffett, 40 photographs document the world hunger crisis as part of a global awareness campaign. Traveling to more than 137 countries, Buffett turned his camera lens on the powerful forces that fuel hunger and poverty. The compelling photography in the exhibit illustrates the causes and effects of hunger on five continents and reflects Howard G. Buffett's belief that hunger is intertwined with poverty, fear, war and conflict, and the lack of opportunity for women. The exhibit also includes an original Newseum film featuring Buffett and his work, and a tactile display that reveals the leading causes of death worldwide. Visitors can use a touch-screen kiosk highlighting five organizations working on solutions to world hunger and conflict.
