Poverty is one of the most important issues facing the globe. There is a growing divide between the rich and poor in developed countries, as well as a major divide between developed and undeveloped countries.

Poverty is defined as lack of possessions and wealth, and it comes as both absolute poverty (where basic human needs such as food and water are missing), and relative poverty, where the level of wealth of a person is significantly lower than the average of the population.

Poverty has devastating effects on families, personal health, and economic stability, and while there are no easy solutions, it is an issue the global community is working to address. For photographers, poverty in photographs can be especially moving and tug at the heart strings.
