This week, we’re featuring a series from documentary filmmaker and photographer Nate Slaco. In his latest documentary, Nate sheds light on the importance of clean water access by capturing the stories of young girls in Ethiopia. Here are a few words from Nate about his work, and you can also scroll down to the bottom of the page to see the documentary…
In March of 2019, I traveled to Northern Ethiopia to make a documentary on the effects of clean water access on young girls lives and how it helps them receive an education. I also brought my Leica iiiF with a couple rolls of Kodak Tri-X. While not the ideal camera for documentary work, I managed to get some shots in focus. I have always been a big fan of Tri-X, and it worked really well without having a meter and using Sunny 16. We were lucky enough to meet some really great people who shared their lives with us.
