40 Chances: Finding Hope in A Hungry World, The Photography of Howard G. Buffett

December 16, 2020 - March 6, 2021

Newseum Traveling Exhibits

In this powerful exhibit featuring the photography of Howard G. Buffett, 40 photographs document the world hunger crisis as part of a global awareness campaign. Traveling to more than 137 countries, Buffett turned his camera lens on the powerful forces that fuel hunger and poverty.

A philanthropist and farmer, Buffett believes that each of us has about 40 chances to accomplish our life goals, just as farmers have about 40 growing seasons to improve their harvests. His photography is a call to action to find lasting solutions to the world hunger crisis.

The compelling photography in the exhibit illustrates the causes and effects of hunger on five continents and reflects Howard G. Buffett’s belief that hunger is intertwined with poverty, fear, war and conflict, and the lack of opportunity for women.

The exhibit also includes an original Newseum film featuring Buffett and his work, and a tactile display that reveals the leading causes of death worldwide. Visitors can use a touch-screen kiosk highlighting five organizations working on solutions to world hunger and conflict to learn how they can be a part of Buffett’s 40 Chances campaign.
