Photographer Michael Nye & The Face of Hunger in America

And often people ask me...What are you working on?  I'm working on a project on hunger.   Almost always the next sentence is, 'What Country'?  -Michael Nye

A piece in the AARP Web site featured the work of photographer Michael Nye, who spent four years traveling our country to capture the faces of hunger.  Here is an excerpt from the article entitled, Faces of Hunger.  The piece was part of a weekly feature called MyGeneration 
Over 50 million Americans go hungry each day. For many people, this may seem like just another jaw-dropping statistic, but to photographer Michael Nye, these men and women all have a unique face and a memorable story to tell. 
The article is brief and is intended only as an introduction to the photos and the narrative that appear in this very touching  video below.
