Amazing Africa: Photos from a jet-setting ONE member

Amazing Africa: Photos from a jet-setting ONE member


Join the fight against Extreme Poverty

I am so excited to share with you today the work of one of your fellow ONE members, Ahtziri Gonzalez. Ahtziri is a 22-year-old photographer from Mexico City who — according to her blog — “travels… parties… writes… lives,” and above all, takes some beautiful photography. She emailed me 10 of her best photos from Africa, and they’re just stunning. What I like about her photos is that it’s vibrant, colorful and upbeat, but she also has an eye for quiet moments. Scroll through her photos to see what I mean:
