As a photographer I have dreamed of creating the kind of work that Damon Winter, James Nachtwey, Lynsey Addario, Ron Haviv, Colin Finlay and many other amazing people do every day. Perhaps one day I will. But for now, these folks are carrying the water…doing the heavy lifting to show the world the indelible face of tragedy, suffering, and loss on a scale that we struggle to comprehend. I follow this blog daily: Lens: The New York Times Photo Blog. Take a look. Visit their sites. Involve yourself in a reality far removed from our own…but in the most important way, inextricably linked, as we are all human. Now, let’s show some humanity.
Visit Partners in Health, Doctors without Borders, and help, please. It does make a difference. And if you do, email me. I’ll send you a 10×15 print of any image from this blog to say thank you. I’m not a registered 501(c)3…..I just want to help in the biggest way possible. (Empty hands, but full heart….)
with deep respect, Keron
