Enough to Go Around relates award-winning documentary filmmaker and photojournalist, Chip Duncan’s experiences in drought ravaged southern Ethiopia, war-torn Afghanistan, parts of Pakistan devastated by an earthquake in 2005, and the North Darfur region of Sudan, where an ongoing conflict has been described as a genocide. Duncan combines descriptive storytelling with compelling images to break down stereotypes. His stories and personal insights help to humanize the characters he meets along the way. From an Ethiopian aid worker’s simple act of sharing to an Afghan cab driver’s new found freedom to listen to cassette tapes he’d been forced to hide while living under the rule of the Taliban, Duncan puts forth a powerful argument in favor not of our differences, but of our similarities.
Enough to Go Around shows the pitfalls of ignoring history and dehumanizing entire populations. The end result is not only a moving portrait of displaced people and humanitarian aid workers, it’s an examination of how many in the West fail to see the hope and beauty of the developing world. With respect to two decades of experience in the developing world, Duncan says, “While we have much to share and teach, we also need to listen and learn. Empowerment is a two-way street, and enlightenment can be found anywhere.”
This beautiful and inspiring book includes a foreword by philanthropist, Jennifer Buffett.
