This book, Strength and Compassion: Photographs and Essays by Eric Greitens, is definitely on my must-read list. Here’s a review from Amazon:
This collection brings together the best of Eric Greitens’ award-winning international humanitarian photography work with a striking series of essays. Engaging photographs from Rwanda, Cambodia, Albania, Mexico, India, the Gaza Strip, Croatia, and Bolivia are combined with bold, intelligent essays on Strength, Pity, Dignity, Courage, Faith, Time, Hope, and Compassion. Though the photographs for this book were taken in different countries and amid different struggles, a common theme emerges: even in times of great hardship and in the face of great evil, people with strength and compassion can live with courage.
