Portraits of Instability

Today, while doing some research for my internship at ASCEND alliance, I found two tragic but interesting photo essays. The first is titled Portraits of Instability and shows haunting images of many fragile countries throughout the world where people live in abject poverty. The photo above is from this collection and it just breaks my heart. The next is called The Land of No Smiles and is a photo essay of North Korea. My interest was peaked because I know so little about North Korea and have always wondered what life is like in such a country. I think the most shocking picture in this collection is the one taken of the streets in the capital city. Both these essays aren't very long so if you have a minute check them out.
