MOTHERJONES, THERE GROWS THE NEIGHBORHOOD

MotherJones published in print images from Emily Schiffer’s Securing Food in Chicagoland in their July/August 2012 issue.

But considering Emily Schiffer’s photos, I was reminded of Mother Teresa’s visit to a housing project on Chicago’s West Side in the mid-1980s. What rattled her was not the poverty of the pocket-book. She’d seen worse in India. Rather, it was what she called ‘the poverty of the spirit.’”

 The article will be online in July. We will keep you posted!
