I hate stating the obvious, but there are certain stories that make you smile, and this is one. In November, New York-based photographer Liz Brown will take part in a unique program to help document the work of Operation Smile, the medical charity that sends volunteers around the globe to repair childhood facial deformities. The organization will be conducting 40 missions in 25 countries; an estimated 5,000 children may be treated in that one single month. Brown, along with several Operation Smile photographers, will be assigned to one of the medical missions. On October 2, Metro newspaper group and Look at Life, an arts organization, will sponsor an exhibition of Brown’s work to help raise money for Brown’s trip. You pay $50 to get into the show and have the chance to buy raffle tickets for $10 each. For more information, go here.
