Award-winning photographer Tom Craig was commissioned by the humanitarian charity Medecins Sans Frontieres/Doctors without Borders to document the writers in these places in trouble. His striking photographs amplify the sense of compassion required while also demonstrating that beautiful humanity is the victim of tragedy. -- from publisher's description."@en ;
