New Haven resident and photographer works to help people in Iraq
Reception and photo showing coming up
NEW HAVEN - Photojournalist Daniel W. Smith, who recently spent four months in Iraq and will return soon to Baghdad, will have a "Life in War: Iraq & Afghanistan 2002-2008" reception and show and sale of his photographs from 7 to 9 p.m. Sept. 20 at United Church on the Green 270 Temple St.
The suggested donation is $5-$35 and all of the proceeds will benefit aid organizations in Iraq, including small medical clinics, Smith said. When Smith returns to Iraq, he will again bring medical supplies donated by New Haven’s REMEDY, a non-profit that funnels such supplies to those in who need, he said.
The event will include food, wine, live music and a Q&A with Smith 7:30 p.m.
