Oren Ginzburg is a French-Israeli writer and cartoonist and the founder of Hungry Man Books. His most famous book and short film, There You Go!, was published by Survival International in 2006 and is considered a reference on the fate of tribal people facing "development". The book, translated into 8 languages, received excellent reviews from Mary Robinson, Desmond Tutu, and Tony Blair. The book was adapted into a music show by Philippe Kadosh (BabelEyes, 2011). In Facilitating Multicultural Groups: A Practical Guide, Christine Hogan wrote: “In There You Go!, Ginzburg challenges the arrogant assumption that Westerners can teach ‘sustainable development’ to tribal people by introducing (imposing) impractical and short-sighted ‘income-generating’ projects which ultimately lead to economic collapse of the environment or bare-faced theft of mineral, timber, and other resources by companies from the outside.”

Le destin (presque) timbré d'Etienne Durillon, published in France by Grasset Jeunesse (September 2016) has been featured in the newspaper Libération and was awarded the Prix franco-allemand pour la littérature de jeunesse 2018.

Oren Ginzburg lives in Yangon, Myanmar and is the Director of the Access to Health Fund.
