Fotoweek DC is coming up as of this Friday. I’ve pulled out some of the best events along with short descriptions, times, cost, and a link to the registration URL. As you can see, I’m speaking on Sunday morning, presenting my photos and videos from the Hope in South Africa project.
Lots here to enjoy and support.
Sunday Nov 6, 11am – Noon – Peter Krogh presentation of Hope In South Africa – Free
Fotoweek Central 1800 L St. NW
Join photographer Peter Krogh as he discusses his travels to South Africa’s central Karoo region to document the work of a small Maryland-based non-profit. His travels have resulted in a prolific, breathtaking set of images, as well as a short film. The material outlines the challenges that HIV and AIDs presents to this sparsely populated agricultural community, and how those challenges are being addressed through a total community effort.
