Worth a look: VII & MSF’s Starved for Attention

Starved For Attention - VII and MSF

VII and MSF (Doctors without Borders) have just unveiled their latest collaboration, Starved for Attention. The project, a multimedia campaign featuring photos, videos, interviews, petitions, exhibitions, panel discussions, and other events, seeks to “expose the neglected and largely invisible crisis of childhood malnutrition” worldwide. Photographers Marcus Bleasdale, Jessica Dimmock, Ron Haviv, Antonin Kratochvil, Franco Pagetti, Stephanie Sinclair, and John Stanmeyer, have produced documentaries for the project in Bangladesh, Burkina Faso, Democratic Republic of Congo, Djibouti, India, Mexico, and the United States. Marcus Bleasdale’s piece, Frustration, from Djibouti is the only one online right now, but more will be released over the coming months. The exhibition is currently on display in Brooklyn at the VII Gallery (map), and will travel through the rest of the year. Check out the project blog, too.
