Open Arms Viet Nam - Reception with Photographer Steve Mason

Open Arms Embracing Change Through Art / Viet Nam will show at Flea St. Cafe April 15 through July 15, 2006.

Viet Nam Pilot Project
In the spring of 2005 and 2006 Open Arms traveled to Viet Nam and opened a dialogue with street children, runaways, orphaned children, those that are suffering from debilitating diseases, and the organizations assisting them. Open Arms will raise awareness of the plight of these children, suggest alternatives to their struggle, and donate proceeds of all sales to well-respected sustainable local Vietnamese organizations that work for their betterment.

Steve Mason, is an award winning photographer who has shot for major clients and causes around the world for two decades. His ability to be-in-the-moment through his lenses has made him one of a highly sought after and elite group of commercial photographers shooting extensively for REI, Eddie Bauer, LL Bean, Nordstrom, Wrangler, JC Penney, Early Winters, Home Depot and Holland America.

Steve balances his commercial work by bringing this skill to capture and amplify a moment in time for a variety of causes. In addition to his work with Open Arms, Steve has done work with Flying Doctors of America in Venezuela and captured the adventure of Sailing in Force 9 conditions into Havana harbor with Ocean Navigator to bring medical supplies to local hospitals. Most recently, a piece of his work was featured in the prestigious FotoRelief for Tsunami relief in New York City. or contact
