The "Inaugural Edition" of The Other Hundred Project Hong Kong - 2013


The stories of people around the world who are not rich but who deserve to be celebrate

"The Inaugural Edition of The Other Hundred was meant as a counterpoint to the Forbes 100, Bloomberg billionaires list, and the countless other rich lists that are constantly making headlines. The aim was to highlight the stories of people around the world who are not rich but who deserve to be celebrated. Its 100 photo-stories move beyond the stereotypes and cliches that fill so much of the world's media to explore the lives of people whose aspirations and achievements are at least as noteworthy as any member of the world's richest 1,000. Selected from 11,000 images shot in 158 countries and submitted by nearly 1,500 photographers, The Other Hundred celebrates those who will never find themselves on the world's rich lists or celebrity websites. The Other Hundred is a not-for-profit initiative of the Global Institute For Tomorrow."
