As the world’s population grows, hunger persists on a massive scale
By. By Kenneth R. Weiss :: Photography by Rick Loomis
This multimedia package is an awesome interactive package and I can see why Kenneth Weiss and Rick Loomis deserve their work to be top 3 of the best multimedia in 2013. Los Angeles Times staff writer Kenneth R. Weiss and staff photographer Rick Loomis traveled across Africa and Asia to document the causes and consequences of rapid population growth. They visited Kenya, Uganda, China, the Philippines, India, Afghanistan and other countries.
Through the World section of Los Angeles Times, the content of this package looks intriguing. The world populations estimator was the eye catching on the first page and all their works was divided into 5 parts:
- The Biggest Generation – This package talks about the populations growth since the beginning and has grown overtime and the expert predicted that by 2050 it will be at least 9.3 billion people.
- Tinderbox of youth – Focusing on population pyramid specifically in middle east
- Hunger without End
- The China effects
- Dream out of reach
All of the package are well organize with the in depth story, visual graphic, photography and videos on each story. without reading the entire text I can really understand the story just by visualizing it, which is incredible how Weiss and Loomis can do that to their audiences.
