A Beautiful Documentary (just photo and sound...)

I came across this documentary by Shaun Bauer (an American Photographer) as part of my coursework assigned pre-Salt. It is a fine example of how you can make such a touching piece of work using only still images and recorded sound. It really is a real-life example of one of Salt's founding principles... "Documentary is more than just video."

Click on the picture below to view "Hotel Poverty" in it's entirety. A truly profound piece of work...
