With a splash, the reptilian head emerges suddenly from the water and Julius leans over the edge, putting one 9mm round through it's brain. (...)

 

The state of Louisiana is home to the largest alligator population in the United States, estimated to be almost 2 million. (...) The alligator farming industry in Louisiana alone annually harvests 140,000-170,000 gators which are valued at over $ 12,000,000.

Omo Valley | Photographer: Steve McCurry

Omo Valley | Photographer: Steve McCurry | Photojournalism & documentary photography Fotografia sociale e documentaria, fotogiornalismo | Scoop.it

It was a privilege to go to the Omo Valley in Ethiopia with my friend, John Rowe, to photograph the work he is doing with Lale Labuko in their work to end the practice of mingi and to house and shelter the mingi children who have already been rescued.


I met John in Burma a few years ago. He is a photographer and successful businessman who has founded companies which develop software for digital media and the entertainment industry. 
He has also devoted a tremendous amount of time, energy, and financial assistance to the work of Omo Child. Lale was born into the Kara Tribe in the Omo River Valley.  He was one of the first of his tribe to receive a formal education.

 

That opportunity led him to realize the critical importance of ending the tribal ritual of Mingi. Lale lost two sisters to Mingi. Outlawing and stopping this devastating practice of Mingi is his life’s mission. - Steve Mccurry
