Art meets economics in 'The Poverty Line' by Chow and Lin

Is it better to be poor in the US or India? What does living below a country's poverty line mean for the way people sustain themselves? We speak to photographer-economist duo Chow and Lin about their book "The Poverty Line", a decade-long project that explores what living with limited resources means for the dinner plates of different communities around the globe. Their exhibition "Summer of Fireflies: The Poverty Line Solo Exhibition" will be showing at the Rencontres d'Arles festival from July 4.
