Casa Gabriel
« on: April 11, 2011, 02:07:38 AM »

Last weekend I covered the delivery of 1500 diapers to Casa Gabriel in the rural area of Maniadero. The Rotary club members from Los Angeles and San Diego drove to Mexico to donate the needed items. Casa Gabriel takes care of 35 children with various mental problems, they operate with donations only. The diapers are needed to prevent skin diseases due to their inability to communicate and control their bodily functions. I managed to take a few photographs since my main job was mainly videography.

Very touching portraits of those kids. Also, I like your subdued color treatment in #3 and #4.

W. Eugene Smith: http://www.magnumphotos.com/C.aspx?VP=XSpecific_MAG.PhotographerDetail_VPage&l1=0&pid=2K7O3R139C2T&nm=W%2E%20Eugene%20Smith

Andres, among other things, Gene Smith did a series of photo stories for Life magazine. Some of his greatest were "Country Doctor" (my favorite), "A Man of Mercy" (Albert Schweitzer), "Nurse Midwife" (Maude Callen), and "Minimata," the story of a Japanese town poisoned by heavy concentrations of mercury released from a local chemical factory. Gene also was a war photographer during WW II. Considering the photographic genre you're involved in, I'm surprised you don't know Smith's work. He was a giant in your genre.

Thank you!!!! What an extraordinary link! The photo of the soldier with the cigarette is one of my dad 's favorite pictures. It was on a WW II enciclopedia I used to read 40 years ago in South America.

Thank you so much! I have more but I am so involved in the editing of the video series and their deadline that I have had very little time for the stills.
