ART | 'Photography with a Purpose' 

Photographers Jorge Alvarado and Lindsay Jewett in 2017 created the non-profit organization, Walking With A Purpose, to assist with sustainable development and clean water access in Nicaraguan communities. Current political unrest in Nicaragua has compounded problems that Nicaraguans face. Alvarado and Jewett have created photographs that show both the beauty and the struggles of the communities they work within, and many of these images are currently exhibited at Nu Movement Gallery. You can preview the work at
