One of my constant frustrations working with some of the vulnerable people I serve is not always being able to speak freely.

This doesn’t only include what you read, but unfortunately any type of rich media such as photography and videos.

Often these are the most moving forms of media and it’s a struggle to raise awareness and garner support without them.

Because of this ever-present challenge, I’ve been very struck and inspired by a recent photo exhibition and wanted to share it with you and hope you’ll continue to pass it along.

Andrew McConnell, a photojournalist, traveled around the world and collected stories from urban refugees, including some from those right here in Bangkok. Watch the making of his exhibition Hidden Lives below:

You can also read more about the exhibition and view more of his stunning photos at Hidden-Lives.org.

Have a great week and if you’re in Bangkok, join this week’s Dinner & A Cause!
