Hey, friends in the Pacific Northwest, got plans tonight? I donated (along with most of the amazing, talented photographers I know in PDX) one of my new Berlin images to the Prints for Prints photography auction being held tonight at The Secret Society, 7pm. Proceeds go to supporting a good cause, so go treat yourself to some incredible eye-candy imagery, live music and tasty cocktails all night long! This November, photographer and humanitarian Joni Kabana will be traveling to Ethiopia with a small team of photographers to set up a portable studio in several villages. Many families have no record or image of their loved ones, and when we are able to give prints to villagers from Eastern Oregon to Africa, it is appreciated beyond measure. The team will capture portraits and donate the prints to the families they photograph. In addition, each US photographer will be paired with an Ethiopian photographer so there is an exchange of talents: technical skills, cultural awareness, and love for humanity.
Click here for more information, and have fun tonight. I wish I could be there to show my support along with all my Portland photographer friends!
