Kelly Fogel is a Los Angeles based photographer focused on documenting transitioning cultures, wildlife and empowering youth to capture their lives with cameras. Across the Omo Valley is Fogel’s most recent project documenting the lives of the ethnic groups in Ethiopia’s Southern Omo Valley region where the government has built dams and factories on their land. Work from this project has been showed in exhibits in Washington DC and LA and have been selected for several juried shows across the US, including Photo LA in 2019. The Oakland Institute recently published their report on the Omo Valley using Kelly’s photos for the cover of the report which has been sent to the government of Ethiopia and distributed globally. In 2020, Kelly has been selected to join the Jimmy Nelson Foundation as a team member documenting indigenous cultures and festivals around the world.
While in LA, Kelly has been the on-set photographer for the documentary Venice, Unzipped about income inequality and homelessness in Venice, CA. She is a mentor and teacher at Venice Arts, The Boys & Girls Clubs and Pablove Shutterbugs, teaching photography for low-income teens and kids with cancer. www.KellyFogel.com
Ohana One is a nonprofit organization started by local clinicians, surgeons, and anesthesiologists from LA. Their aim is to provide surgical care and education to their ohana (Hawaiian for family) around the world through medical missions. They do this by utilizing a unique technology using smart glasses to establish surgical training in countries that have little training for surgeons.
