The Power of Dignity - Die Kraft der Würde: The Grameen Family.

Richter, Roger & Spiegel, Peter.
Bielefeld: Kamphausen, 2008.

The Power of Dignity“ is a book of Peter Spiegel (essays) and Roger Richter (photos) that aims to change our view of the poor. It contains photographs of and essays about people in rural, poor areas of Bangladesh. The persons appearing in these photos belong to the Grameen family; the employees and owners of Grameen organisations as well as microcredit borrowers and founders of small, independent businesses. “The Power of Dignity” takes a new perspective by encountering people with an aesthetic of dignity instead of presenting people seeking help.
