Challenge #21 in the The Art Director series. Hosted by jezsik.
Challenge has finished
The client is a Western newspaper doing a feature on poverty. They seek a suitable B&W image to illustrate the story. Since the article is not about third-world poverty, they do not want images of mud huts, hand plowing, aid packages, etc., but of "civilized" poverty. The image must be bold and grab the attention of the readers, drawing them to the story. People in the image must not be recognizable.
