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.


Woman + Accessories, Mursi Community, Ethiopia

She was the first person photographed during my time with this community, and the one with the most intricate presentation. She just stepped in front of my camera without hesitation and allowed a roll to be exposed. From this image forward my infatuation with this community has continued to grow. Rather than spending a couple of days as planned, we stayed for almost one week before moving on to another region in the Lower Omo Valley. She and her community live in a region quite remote in terms of access, requiring a day of transportation from the larger populations and then two hours of harsh terrain before reaching their small villages inside Mago National Park. In order to be granted access, an armed guard is supplied at the entrance without choice. The community however is as hospitable, kind and gracious as any experienced within Ethiopia.
