Renowned National Geographic Documentary Photographer Steve McCurry To Visit OMO CHILD Home in Ethiopia
We are very excited – and honored – to announce that world-renowned documentary photographer Steve McCurry will be traveling to the Omo Valley with our Co-Founder John Rowe this July. Steve McCurry is highly celebrated for his iconic 1984 “Afghan Girl” cover photo taken while on assignment for National Geographic. This magnificent image quickly became the magazine’s most recognized photograph, and is one of the most memorable photos of the past century.
This will be Steve’s first trip to the Omo Valley where he will be photographing the tribes of the Omo and our 37 children in our OMO CHILD home in Jinka. Prints signed by Steve McCurry from the summer trip will be available for purchase on our website early this Fall. All proceeds from the sale of these prints will benefit OMO CHILD.
