About Renée C. Byer
Renee C. Byer

© Paul Kitagaki, Jr.

Renée C. Byer is a photojournalist best known for her in-depth work focusing on the disadvantaged and those who otherwise would not be heard. Her ability to produce photographs with profound emotional resonance and sensitivity earned her the Pulitzer Prize for feature photography in 2007 and made her a Pulitzer finalist in 2013. As a Senior Photojournalist for The Sacramento Bee, she has covered local, national, and international stories for the newspaper since 2003. When not on assignment, she can be found sharing her passion for photography at lectures and workshops worldwide.

About her book “Living on a Dollar a Day”

“…I was humbled by the grace, generosity, fortitude, and bravery of the hardworking men, women and children who allowed me into their lives, lives they did not choose and often cannot control. Through them my life was enriched. I hope you’ll look deeply into these photographs and let them change your life too.”

Renée C. Byer

To create her work for Living On A Dollar A Day (The Quantuck Lane Press; 2014), a ground-breaking book that is a call to action to eradicate extreme poverty, Pulitzer Prize-winning photojournalist Renée C. Byer traveled to ten countries on four continents to illuminate the human faces of poverty. With support from The Forgotten International (The Forgotten International), a nonprofit organization based in San Francisco that works to alleviate poverty in the U.S. and worldwide, Byer sought out people who live on the brink of survival – on a dollar a day. Her beautiful and searing photographs along with the personal stories Byer gathered, give a voice to those who would not otherwise be heard.
