I *really* hate sites that resize the browser window.

Those are some amazing photographs.
Grow up about resized windows.

it confuses me that there are so few comments on this. This is really interesting and beautiful.

ig, this is a most excellent project ... it's so intimate a portrait, the way you are brought into people's home - or living spots, since some don't really even have homes - and hear their story. This is very moving. I am struck by how hopeful people are, what dignity they have despite sustenance living standards.

I am not done viewing it, but wanted to say thanks very much for posting this.

This is really amazing. I wish I had more time to really explore the site, I've definitely got it bookmarked for later. Thanks, ig.

Terrible website, fantastic photos. Wish I could read the accounts rather than sit through the interpreters' retelling.
