I am excited to debut the 7-minute documentary “Land of Hardship, People of Hope” on my Multimedia page. I shot a week-long project revealing Ethiopia’s orphan crisis and the work that an amazing nonprofit agency is doing to revitalize some of the hardest-hit communities. The presentation, captured with Canon EOS 5D Mark II video and stills cameras, combines HD video, stills and sound, as well as beautiful Ethiopian music. I had the honor of working with the kind people at Crispin Porter + Bogusky ad agency, who edited and produced the video pro bono.
I am also selling select images from my travels in Ethiopia to raise money for Wide Horizons for Children’s Ethiopian humanitarian-aid program. 100 percent of proceeds from the sale of these prints will go to this outstanding nonprofit agency.
