Prints for Prints Team Ethiopia 2013

Three Project Dayshoot photographers are about to embark on a trip to Ethiopia for the 2013 Prints for Prints project. Prints for Prints is a volunteer-run organization that works to put family photographs in the hands of people in rural areas who would not otherwise have this precious record. Talented photographers from around the world have donated their images to make the upcoming work in Ethiopia possible.

In support of this amazing project, today we're sharing a Project Dayshoot image from each of these three photographers: Joni Kabana, Steve Bloch, and Bill Purcell. To find out more about Prints for Prints, visit printsforprints.com.
