Each and every week hundreds of Berkshire families make use of the food pantries and hot meal sites located mostly in local houses of worship. Who are these neighbors of ours who on a daily basis struggle to eke out a living in this beautiful and scenic area?
With Take Another Look, photographer Nick De Candia hopes to make visible the dignity, strength, and dilemma of those trying to feed themselves and their families on minimum wage salaries or other minimal incomes. Through the lens of the artist this exhibit will visually demonstrate the dilemma of feeding a family on a minimum wage salary. —Discover Pittsfield
