Powered by Love
Millions of children were orphaned by the AIDS pandemic in Sub-Saharan Africa. Their grandmothers stepped in to hold families and communities together. Author Joanna Henry and photographer Alexis MacDonald visited eight African countries, interviewing and photographing hundreds of grandmothers (including Sarah Obama, Barack Obama's grandmother) who are reclaiming hope and resurrecting lives. The extraordinary images and stories of resourceful women fighting for a better future make Powered by Love an inspiration for everyone. "These voices will leap straight into your heart. Their unguarded faces, in portraits that glow with character, pain and humour, will captivate you."
