suzanne's photographs

Change the Truth Team 4 and 5 member Suzanne Garr has been quite busy lately! She's been preparing for an exhibition of the photographs she made in Uganda last December. The cool news is that this is not only an exhibition, it's also a fundraiser.

The show opened last weekend at Marian Gallery, Mt. Mary College in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin. This Sunday, there will be an opening reception from 2 - 4 PM. Suzanne will celebrate the children from the orphanage by sharing the beautiful photographs she made, showing the Change the Truth documentary (made by Lynne Melcher) selling crafts from Uganda and showing/selling artwork made by the children. All the proceeds taken in that day with go directly to CTT and then back to the very children Suzanne is honoring.

Suzanne has been a loyal and strong supporter of CTT for a couple years now. How lucky we are to have her as one of our greatest cheerleaders!

Her photographs are lovely. They come straight from Suzanne's heart.

If you live in the Milwaukee area, do check out the show. I think you'll be very moved.

I've been lucky enough to know Suzanne for a number of years now. She's one of the most sensitive and kind women I know, and that goes a long way in making outstanding photos. She's a prize.
