Art: Love and Despair by Artist Sandra Bordelon Butler
I was given permission to use this photograph by Chris Herwig.

The look of longing and despair in the mother's eyes captured me. As the baby nurses, he seems to be sapping his mother's strength.

I would like to do a series of mothers and their children in Third World Countries to bring attention to their plight..

The colors are muted except for the clothing of the little boy. He is the hope for the future of his people, no matter how bleak.
