Winter Collection: Karnataka

A poignant reminder that in parts of the world "derelicte" as a Winter Collection is a way of life born of necessity, not a movie punch line.  The New Ark Mission of India dressed up poor street kids in their everyday clothes...discarded newspapers, sacks, and cardboard and photographed them for these moving posters, drawing attention to the extreme poverty in Karnataka, India.  An ad campaign to make us reflect on that which we take for granted, and how many luxuries we are every day afforded in the privileged world.

The New Ark Mission of India is an organization which devotes itself wholly to rescuing and rebuilding the lives of the destitute and dying people on the streets - read more about it here.
