A couple of years ago I had the great fortune of travelling to India with Plan Canada. Never could I have imagined all that would have come out of that endeavour.
First, my photos were featured in Chatelaine Magazine in a seven-page spread. Then, it lead to me being asked to go to Rwanda with them later that year (blog post here). The images from those two trips were part of an exclusive Catherine Farquharson photography 2013 Calendar that Plan put out as one of their Gifts of Hope. And then, THEN, we used the photos to create an art show in the CONTACT photography festival, which raised $8000 for the Because I am a Girl Campaign.
Here’s a video Plan made of me speaking about why this work is important to me.
