This exhibit shares a taste of a few global health issues that I have come across throughout my journeys in Malawi, Guinea, India, and Lebanon over the past three years. The photos capture a range of public health issues around commonplace discussions, such as transportation safety and waste disposal, and specific regional issues, such as health/safety in the face of violence.
Revisiting my own photographs stimulates not only my sense of sight, but also the sense of smell, touch, and sound that accompanies these memories. I cannot forget the poignant smell of blood that hit my nostrils entering the city of Nabatiyeh, or the strength of the sun's rays on my skin as I inhaled the putrid smells of waste on Conakry's shoreline. And more importantly are the relationships I fostered with the subjects of these photographs, whether through direct interaction or even with their permission to let me enter their lives for a brief moment. My memories color each of these photos with layers of meaning that I can only hope to partially impart through a split-second capture.
