Overview

True Africa showcases the best and worst of what orphans in Sub-Saharan Africa live with everyday. Is there poverty? Yes. But there is also beauty, dignity, a generosity of hospitality, and joy. Extreme poverty is an assault on human dignity, but at the end of the day it is no match for the human soul. Dignity can be obscured, beaten down, and dressed in tatters, but its essence remains. If you are perceptive, you will see it. Professional photographer David Sacks is a master at drawing out these qualities in his subjects. He shows that people—both children and adults—are not defined by the outer shell of their adversity. So put aside all your preconceived notions about the calamities Africa may or may not be facing and enjoy this photographic journey into the beautiful and joyful people who live there.
