February 6 General Meeting

John Rowe, an award winning, world-renowned photographer and philanthropist, was our speaker for this meeting.  John gave a slideshow presentation of outstanding photographs from his ten years of travel throughout the world.  In the course of those travels, he became focused on the beauty of the primitive tribes of the Omo River Valley in Ethiopia.  Although he had intended to publish his photographs at the end of his travels, his life experience among the Omo tribes convinced him instead to use his photos to raise awareness of the plight of these people and, with the help of a local tribesman, Lale Labuko, to fund and maintain a shelter for the Mingi (cursed) infants of the tribes. See the Ranch Santa Fe Review article by Gillian Gillies for details and pictures of this great program.
