It’s been a busy first part of 2010 and I have been fortunate that my photography has been well received. I had an exhibit of my work for a malaria prevention and treatment program (sponsored by Pfizer) at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. I was also chosen to be the featured exhibiting photographer at this year’s Pacific Health Summit (http://www.pacifichealthsummit.org/ ) to be held in London June 22-24th. This year’s topic is on newborn and maternal healthcare.
Also in June, Columbia Mailman School of Public Health will feature my work in Ethiopia at the Women Deliver conference (http://www.womendeliver.org/conferences/-2010-conference/ ). And as an extra bonus, the San Francisco Arts Commission, in conjunction with the International Museum of Women, chose 5 of my images from Capital of Hope, a book on microfinance and girls’ education, to be in a group exhibit on Picturing Power and Potential (http://www.sfartscommission.org/gallery/2010/picturing-power-potential/) to be shown at San Francisco City Hall. The opening is June 15th from 5:30- 7:30 pm. I was also informed that Blurb will be using Capital of Hope, in their marketing efforts as an example of a well-photographed, designed and produced book.
The last two weeks of April I traveled in China photographing marketing materials for a new venture, WinVivo, that will be selling pure extracts of Chinese botanicals that have been used for centuries combined in innovative ways for disease prevention. In July, I have plans to photograph in Nigeria for the Packard Foundation to dodocument their ten year anniversary of successful efforts in women’s reproductive healthcare programscument their ten year anniversary of successful efforts in women’s reproductive healthcare programs.
