A Message from Sting

My friend Bobby Sager had been taking photographs of children in war-torn areas such as Afghanistan, Iraq, Rwanda, and the refugee camps of northern Pakistan and Palestine. Their faces are a perfect visual analogue for my song "Invisible Sun." You can clearly see the anguish and torment in the eyes of those children brought up among violence and injustice, bombs and bullets, but in the next frame (and this is Bobby's genius) the laughter and hope in their eyes when he surprises them with acting the fool, some unexpected zaniness like blowing a raspberry, and engaging them on a simple human level as his right hand clicks away to capture these unforgettable images. This is the invisible sun made visible.
