Photo series: Millennium Goals? Or poverty?




The day after the World Leaders spoke at the United Nations Millennium Goal Summit, I found myself in a place called Hurlingham. I was covering pollution and waste management when I took these images. It shocked me to hear the leaders speak at United Nations of events that where unfolding in front of my eyes in a different way. The images I took are far from being an isolated case.

In South America, in most countries a percentage of the people live out of the system of work and are suffering poverty. I have covered, researched and know this to be true by experience. Poverty is a Global issue. It does not refer strictly to countries in Asia or Africa. This is, in my opinion, where we stand on the Millennium Goals. There are significant number of people living in poverty, and while the Global numbers may seem to go down, experts agree that it is due to China´s and India´s fast developing economy. A lot more can and should be done. There is really not much that can be said, what is needed is action and not words. I am a journalist so documenting and reporting is my work and my action.
