In Confrontational Contradictions, Vanessa von Zitzewitz illustrates the growing contrast between the industrialized world and the impoverished world, two realities that at times seem indifferent rather than in conflict. Her images portray a poignant representation of the divide that she hopes to reconcile in an attempt on the one hand to provide aid and on the other, to raise consciousness.

Vanessa von Zitzewitz confronts this divide without passing judgment and makes an objective statement without making any aesthetical compromises.
