From organic coffee farms to raging bulls, Review reporter Tristan Baurick captured many colorful images when he put down his pen and picked up a camera during a 2005 assignment to the island of Ometepe in Nicaragua.

Now his photographs of Bainbridge’s sister island are featured in a month-long photo show and fundraiser at Mora Iced Creamery in downtown Winslow.

The Review will donate all proceeds from the sale of the exhibit’s framed prints to the Bainbridge-Ometepe Sister Islands Association.

Much of Baurick’s reporting and photographs focused on BOSIA’s efforts to develop a clean water system, boost literacy rates, improve health care, build schools and develop markets for organic coffee farmers.

Call Mora at 855-8822 for hours of operation or the Review at 842-6613 to purchase photos.
