Homeless Portraits Exhibition from Instagram Pics with Cachafaz
We recently featured Pachi Tamer aka Cachafaz here in our blog. @cachafaz known as Pachi Tamer is on a mission to help homeless people communicate and meet their needs by using the power of Instagram.
He has taken over 1.000 of portraits of homeless people to date in four cities – Austin, Los Angeles, Medellín (Colombia) and México City (México) and now he is traveling around other countries this year.
I had the great opportunity to meet him in Madrid few weeks ago and I wanted to support his great and human project. You are a great man Pachi.
Join him for his first exhibit in Austin, at Thai Fresh, 909 West Mary St. at 7pm.
Lot of luck Pachi!
