I would like to announce my photo exhibit titled Fighting for the Hill (Lutando pelo Morro) about the Morro da Providência neighborhood in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. This project started as part of a workshop with Magnum photographer David Alan Harvey in 2014, and focuses on the community of the favela in Rio and the challenges that came about because of the 2014 World Cup and 2016 Olympic Games, including the demolition of houses and the forced removal of residents. The photo project highlights the work at Casa Amarela (a community youth home donated by the French artist JR in 2009) and the dedication and work of local Brazilian photographer Maurício Hora in the community. A total of 16 12 X 18 Framed Digital Ink Prints will be on sale for $50 each. Any proceeds from the sale of prints will be donated to help Casa Amarela in Brazil, and I hope to do a similar exhibition in Rio de Janeiro and to lead a photography workshop with the youth at Casa Amarela early next year.

Join us at Coffee & Tea Collective in North Park, San Diego, for some wonderful coffee selections (the BLVD Nights and BLVD Market on El Cajon Blvd. will be happening just a few blocks away as well!). I hope that you can make it to the Fighting for the Hill Photo Exhibit and Reception!
