Illuminated Opening First Friday’s, April 4th, 2014 7-9 PM

Lacy Voight April 4th – May 1st, 2014 Outpost Worldwide, 1919 Baltimore, Kansas City, MO 64108

The HALO Foundation and OutPost Worldwide announce the opening of Illuminated, a photography and multi-media exhibit featuring the work of local photographer Lacy Voight and international HALO youth. From rural villages in India, to slums of Nicaragua and refugee camps in Uganda, Illuminated sheds light on neglected communities often hidden from plain sight. Voight’s work provides a glimpse into the lives of children and adults living in poverty around the world. Voight documents these communities with her work through The HALO Foundation. Voight explains, “On a recent trip to Uganda I visited a refugee camp and for the first time saw children and whole families living in trash. I want to use my experiences working as a photographer and Program Director for The HALO Foundation to bring lightness to dark places like these.” Lacy Voight has worked as the Program Director for The HALO Foundation since 2007. Voight graduated with a BFA in photography from Columbia College in 2006 and exhibits her work annually. Watch Voight’s interview here.

The HALO Foundation empowers youth in the greatest need to become contributing members of their communities. Learn more at www.haloworldwide.org. Press Contact: Rebecca Keeven- rebeccakeeven@haloworldwide.org OutPost Worldwide 1919 Baltimore KCMO, 64108, 913.491.1124 M-F 8:30am-5pm
