Halim Ina, Global Community Portraits, Cleveland Print Room, Humana People to People India, July 12, 2013

An example from the most recent showing at the Cleveland Print Room, in which two schools for girls in India found support for the next year. The good people of this space joined forces to get the word and did so in a most selfless manner.

Portraits from Africa and Asia and the Americas were presented on behalf of the girls of Rajasthan, and we hope that this is only the beginning. All proceeds from the sale of these prints will be allocated to these schools. So if any of these images attract your attention, please feel free to contact me directly and initiate a conversation.

Man + Boulder, Maasai Community, Western Kenya

One day in between sessions with the foundation, we managed to have a day or two on our own. My dear friend Nganga helped in locating a few young men from this community and they took us to their neighborhood where others were gathered. They had traveled a distance from their villages in search of work and were employed in this small town. They agreed and we spent the next day looking for a spot. All around us were boulders, and we found a spot where the light would be perfect in the morning. We called the group to let them know and arranged to meet the next day. It so happened that we were a few minutes late and received a call from the group. While in Kenya many would describe this community as behind the times, and yet here they were wondering where we were in our taxi as they beat us on foot over a distance of ten kilometers.
