The Impoverished Face of Nicaragua

Category: Travel Portraits


Photo and caption by Matteo Donzelli

On Christmas Day, this old man sat on a street's corner in the town of Granada begging for food and money. I was moved by the expression in his eyes, which were filled with so much sorrow and pain. I remembered what Gandhi said, "Poverty is the worst form of violence."

Location: Granada, Granada Region, Nicaragua
