CRITICAL REFLECTION ON THE SEMIOTICS, VISUAL POLITICS, SOCIAL LIFE, and POTENTIAL HISTORY of these photographs.
According to Meyer Brownstone, former Director of Oxfam Canada, Professor Emeritus, Department of Political Science
"humanitarian aid, from my perspective, if not simply food and medical supplies, but my understanding of the application of humanitarian aid has to do with every aspect of human rights, social and economic and political rights, everything that one understands as a right and everything that contributes to supporting those rights and provided externally, as it were, I would call it humanitarian aid, but each of the has its own characteristics of course, it's all very complex, but I would opt for that rather than a much narrower food aid, etcetera."
