Erica Harris makes wonderful collages about life. I love her work! She wrote a post about rummaging around in India for supplies in my old blog, one of the last posts there: Scavenging in India. Erica has traveled around the world, working on many humanitarian projects, always translating those experiences into her art.
She is at it again, this time raising funds for the Duk Lost Boys Clinic in South Sudan. If you don’t know the story, several thousand boys between the ages of 3 and 10 trekked for three years through deserts and horrible conditions until they finally settled in relative safety at a refugee camp in Kenya. They were there for many years until humanitarian efforts helped relocate some of them to the West, including the United States. It’s a sad, yet powerful story of resilience and hope.
