Recently The Renaissance Photography Prize competition was held in London to benefit The Lavendar Trust which benefits breast cancer care in the UK. 60 images were selected out more than 2,500 entries from all over the world by judges Martin Parr, Eamonn McCabe, Charlie Waite and Magnum Photos editor Brigitte Lardinois. The image of "Nai" the young Kenyan girl (whose picture is featured above) will be part of the exhibit. The image was shot while on assignment with Scott Harrison from Charity:Water looking at the conditions of the Samburu people. Scott Harrison and Vance Thompson were crucial in helping raise funds to send Nai to the CURE clinic in Kijabe Kenya to rehabilitate her hands. Through this image and the attention of a lot of helping hearts Nai stands a chance to lead a normal life. Now her picture can help others through this exhibit. The winning entries will be displayed and available for sale at the exhibition, with all proceeds going to the Lavender Trust at Breast Cancer Care.
