Scars and Smiles is a photo gallery exhibit and accompanying lecture that tells the in depth stories of the people effected by but the worst famine to hit the Horn of Africa in 60 years.  


With an up close and personal account by Ridwan Adhami, creative director and photographer with Islamic Relief USA and founder of Ridzdesign, this series aims to humanize a major catastrophe by bringing the people who where hit hardest by this tragedy to the forefront. Bringing not  just the faces but the names and stories of these people, true human stories that any person can relate to, to help connect all of us to pain most of the world will never feel. Ultimately it is about hope and a positive outlook for a future we can all be proud of.
