  • Starved For Attention: 195 Million Stories of Malnutrition


    Doctors Without Borders and VII Photo present "Starved for Attention," a multimedia campaign exposing the neglected and largely invisible crisis of childhood malnutrition.

    "Starved for Attention" aims to rewrite the story of malnutrition through a series of multimedia documentaries that seamlessly blend photography and video from some of the most accomplished and award-winning photojournalists working today. The campaign presents frontline stories of malnutrition from Bangladesh, Burkina Faso, Democratic Republic of Congo, Djibouti, India, Mexico, and the United States.

    This video exhibit will be on view through June 2011, on the Parnassus Campus Library's main floor, around the corner from the elevators.

    For more information, visit the official website.
