Joe Mason is a volunteer ONE Regional Faith Organizer and freelance photographer/videographer who travels the world in order to document faith-based aid and development organizations. We dug through his vast collection of photos to find our favorite close-up shots of men, women and children from recent trips to Kenya and Ethiopia. Let their faces tell their story – of their joys, their frustrations, their hopes, their fears. Enjoy!
