Sinopsis:

It is incomprehensible that in a country like America, with such spectacular wealth and state-of-the-art medical facilities, that 41 million people don't have access to basic health care. That's one-seventh of our entire population! As a result, some 18,000 people die every year because they have no insurance.

The internationally-acclaimed team of photographer Ed Kashi and writer Julie Winokur has documented this staggering crisis in Denied: The Crisis of America's Uninsured. By telling intimate stories, this 112-page illustrated book communicates the issues in a way that is highly charged and deeply moving. Kashi and Winokur reveal the magnitude of the problem through individual testimonials, photo essays and family snap shots. In total the book recounts 41 stories-one for each million uninsured people in America.

He received an NEA Regional Fellowship in 1991 and has won numerous awards from such institutions as Pictures of the Year, Sunday Magazine Awards, World Press Foundation, and the World Affairs Council.
