John Rae show opens in Berlin

"Malagasay village girls," John Rae, All rights reserved.

About half facetiously, John Rae says he makes his living in New York shooting "ugly white guys in suits." What he doesn't tell most people is that the corporate work pays for his travels in Asia, Africa, Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union chronicling the struggles of people against AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis and the efforts of the Global Fund to help them. Opening May 22 in Berlin, "10 Minuten: 20 Leben" (10 Minutes: 20 Lives) is a skilled honest account of his work in these places. See it if you can.

Here's the poster:
