Help THE One give disadvantaged children hope by purchasing Bobby Sager’s visually inspiring coffee table book, featuring images used by Sting during his 2007-2008 Invisible Sun performances.

The Power of the Invisible Sun by entrepreneur turned philanthropist Bobby Sager is a captivating pictorial collection of his encounters with children in war-torn areas of the world such as Afghanistan, Rwanda, Pakistan, Palestine, Sri Lanka, Kenya and Zimbabwe. Taken over the past eight years, Sager’s powerful photographs depict refugees, orphans, child soldiers and just plain kids living with conflict, disaster and displacement. But more importantly, they artfully capture the transcendent spirit of hope in each child’s eyes, revealing joy, innocence and strength.

The Power of the Invisible Sun, which includes a foreword by musician Sting, aims to inspire action and deliver hope. Priced at Dhs799 for a spectacular, large-format limited edition version and Dhs199 for the distribution edition, these collector’s items are so much more than your average coffee table books.
