Tom Stone News
Congratulations to dnj Gallery artist, Tom Stone, for his recent image features in "Rethinking American Poverty" by author Mark R. Rank. The article is extremely thought provoking and is paired perfectly with Tom's moving images of American poverty. Here is a link where you can purchase the full article. Thank you to both parties for shedding light on this issue.
It’s a fundamental paradox: in America, the wealthiest country on earth, one also finds the highest rates of poverty in the developed world. Whether we examine children’s rates of poverty, poverty among working age adults, poverty within single parent families, or overall rates of poverty, the story is much the same—the United States has exceedingly high levels of impoverishment.
