Scott joined the Peace Corps in 1973. Since then he has lived and worked in Asia for 26 years, in East Africa for nine years, in Haiti for three years and in Egypt for three years. His serious interest in photography developed as a means to interact with the diverse people and cultures he encountered in his work. In many ways this interaction, and the possibility of capturing through photography the hope and beauty he encountered, was a counterbalance to the grim realities he grappled with in his relief and development work. His main photographic interests are candid portraiture and documenting the daily life of people. He loves sharing his images and the stories behind them.

Scott will introduce you to Ethiopia’s natural beauty and fascinating culture. He will take you on a photographic journey through his images from Ethiopia and share his experiences living there in the 1980s. This was a time when Ethiopia faced it’s most devastating famine, when the country’s people demonstrated that they could face their challenges with dignity and grace. This will be a thought-provoking and inspiring look into a culturally and geographically rich and diverse country.
