40 Chances Photography Exhibit


Photography Exhibit by Howard G. Buffett

The World Food Prize Hall of Laureates is proud to house Howard G. Buffett's 40 Chances Photography Exhibit. The exhibit features beautiful, insightful photography from around the globe in six main categories: agriculture, water, social conflict, portraits, Howard G. Buffett on the Ground and landscapes.

The photos will give you a glimpse into the daily life of the world's poor, conditions that individuals around the world face while struggling to overcome hunger, poverty, or conflict and the importance of water - one of our planet's most critical resources.  


"Each of us has about 40 chances to accomplish our goals in life. 

Embracing the 40 Chances mindset means that we must get outside of our comfort zones, that we have to break down barriers set up by others, and that we cannot always accept the status quo when it's simply not working. 

Approaching life with a 40 Chances mindset gives you reason to hope and take action, and it forces fresh approaches that our world desperately needs."


The photography exhibit is open for viewing beginning Saturday, November 16 from 9 a.m. - 1 p.m. Guests are welcome to visit the Hall of Laureates and the photography exhibit during our normal public tours. Click here to see additional dates and times the Hall of Laureates is open for tours.
