Our friend Travis Blue has some photo and video work on display at the U.N. in New York as part of Design with the Other 90%: Cities. The show is curated The Smithsonian’s Cooper-Hewitt Design Museum and it celebrates innovation in urban design in the developing world.
Travis volunteers for a micro-farming organization called Abalimi Bezekhaya in South Africa, and represents them at the United Nations. These photos are from his time spent there — see more in person through January at the show.
