ATLANTA – Some 1.8 million Georgians live in poverty.

Basics like food and shelter are not guaranteed from day to day. Yet their struggles are often ignored or forgotten by the public.

That's why St. Vincent de Paul Georgia -- an organization to end poverty, commissioned a photo exhibit called Profiles in Poverty.

The photographs were taken by some of the state's most talented photojournalists as they chronicled the lives of those who live in poverty.

Tim Redman, one of the photographers who participated in this project, and John Berry, CEO and executive director of St. Vincent de Paul Georgia talked to 11Alive's Brenda Wood about the project.
