In had the great pleasure of going to Ethiopia as a Co-Photography Leader with Epic Photo Tours. We went to take a group of Photography Enthusiasts to photograph the tribes living in the Southern Omo Valley. We had a wonderful time. However, it just didn’t feel right to me to be there, take photos and leave, when we were witnessing so much poverty and hardship.  So, with the submissions of everyone on our trip, I designed a magazine to raise funds for Omo Child — a non profit that saves the lives of children considered “mingi” who would be otherwise sent to drown in the Omo River.

For some of my photos and more information, please have a look at my blog post here.

After travelling to the Omo Valley in Ethiopia, a group of photographers produced this limited edition magazine as a fundraiser to help the non-profit organization OMO CHILD. All proceeds from sales will be donated this important Ethiopian charity.
