What, out of sight, out of mind is better?

Seriously, reactions like yours tick me off big-time. The photographer is giving a face to the faceless. Do you really feel it's better that the third-world poor are safely hidden out of sight and out of mind, so you can forget about their existence and go comfortably dreaming on about the next, greatest camera?

There was nothing voyeuristic or exploitative about these pictures. He's connecting with his subjects, and portraying them as human beings, with their individuality and dignity intact. If you can't see that, I pity you .
