BY DAN JURMAN
@ VOL 7 ON NOV 17, 2015

People often talk about a “culture of poverty” as if there are different drivers of behavior at lower socio-economic levels.  Launched by a personal story of his three year old son which inspired him to think differently, Dan Jurman uses pictures to try to show that there is no culture of poverty, just human psychology driving behavior across socio-economic boundaries.
