Overview

Twenty-five years ago, AIDS was unknown in sub-Saharan Africa. Today it's overwhelmingly the continent's biggest killer. In Hope in the Dark, photojournalist Jeremy Cowart documents the hope and pain of Africa's AIDS generation - a generation beset by poverty and fear, a generation in which children in some countries are more likely to die of AIDS than not. But despite the sickening odds, Cowart captures brief glimpses of beauty, optimism and joy as he makes his way across the continent. Through this collection of startling, remarkable images, his lens uncovers not just the magnitude of the problem, but also the places where God is undeniably present in the midst of it.

What People are Saying About This

Donald Miller
Through Jeremy's remarkable eye for beauty and Jena's equally descriptive words, Hope in the Dark allows us to visit the people of Africa, realize their strength, imagine ourselves in their struggles and wrestle with the realities of this world.
—Donald Miller, author of Blue Like Jazz
Matt Wertz
The beauty of this book supersedes the stunning imagery and insightful commentary.
—Matt Wertz, musician
Dan Haseltine
Jeremy Cowart and Jena Lee have brought an orphaned land and its people into focus. This collection of stunning images and insightful descriptions offers a chance to be transformed by the collision of fragile humanity, breathtaking landscapes, vibrant cultures and the cruel and careless effects of poverty, all the while exposing the hope that outshines the dark. This book is full of beautiful, intelligent, creative people and their stories.
