Fundacion Doctor Oswaldo Loor Ecuador Photography

One of the things I like about photography is how it can take you places that you would not normally get to go.

I am in Ecuador.  Last spring I was thinking about moving to another part of the country, and I contacted an acquaintance I knew in Toronto, who had married into a family from here.

Long story shortened I ended up doing some photographic work for the Fundacion Doctor Oswaldo Loor… a eye institute in Portoviejo Ecuador.  The Fundacion offers support to help with education and micro credit to help build businesses.  Beside the chance to work with some great people, I also had the opportunity to see different parts of Manabi that most Gringos don’t go.  This gallery contains some of my favourite images from the two occasions I had to create images for the Fundacion.

As I was photographing these, the main thing that  kept going through my mind was these people are poor, and they have some problems but they seem to be really honestly happy.
