I was asked by FHI 360  in collaboration with Women Deliver, Girls’ Globe and Johnson & Johnson to contribute some of my photos from my upcoming book: Faces of Courage to present during this year’s UN General Assembly opening session the week of September 22-26 in New York. They are creating an online campaign centered around the Twitter hashtag #MDG456Live to draw attention to how the development community is addressing women’s and girls’ issues related to MDGs 4, 5 and 6 at the UN General Assembly. I am very proud to be part of this effort. Here are a set of bookmarks that will be distributed:

A few 2011 highlights

Posted in Awards, Documentary | Photography, Global Health, Kenya, Malaria, News, Non Profit, Recent Projects, womens reproductive healthcare with tags on December 28, 2011 by tuschman

I had the privilege of working on some very satisfying and rewarding projects this past year. I documented the Novartis Malaria Initiative and a few of my photos were recently used in an ad for Novartis in the Dec. 19th issue of the New Yorker. Here is the ad and I have also included the two images uncropped.

I also had the privilege  of photographing a library of images for Planned Parenthood Global and here are a few images that were used in their Annual Report:

To see the full Annual Report, here is a link: (All the large double paged photos are mine with the exception of the one taken in the US).

On the local level I photographed an Annual Report for the Palo Alto Medical Foundation focusing on their oldest patients. Despite the stereotypes of old age, these people were very inspirational. The youngest person, in their late 80’s was a ballroom dancer and the oldest- and this was hard for me to believe- was 105 years old, lived in her own home, had just come back from a cruise and wanted me to help her buy a new computer!

Here is a link to a pdf of the PAMF AR.

Several of the images from this past year received awards in photography competitions.

The image of the Ecuadorian women below was awarded a fifth place award in the APA Something Personal Exhibit in SF this past January.

One of my portraits was nominated among the best in the portrait category of the

INTERNATIONAL COLOR AWARDS PHOTOGRAPHY MASTERS CUP. Photo is below:

And finally the following image was accepted into the One Life International Photography Competition. It was taken while I was documenting a girl’s education program in Rajasthan.

I also was fortunate to collaborate wit Gayle Peterson, a philanthropic consultant, on her new venture.

I will be posting stories from the work I did for Planned Parenthood and the Novartis Malaria Initiative. My next post, however, will be on the problem of third world urban slums, in particular, the slum of Kibera in Nairobi, which I had the occasion to visit twice this past year.

EXCEPTIONAL INDIA PHOTO TOUR DEC 31 2011-JAN 15 2012

Posted in News on July 20, 2011 by tuschman

India Photo Tour – Please Join Me

I will be leading an Eastern India photo tour starting December 31, 2011 exploring the River Ganga (Ganges) from Kolkata (Calcutta) to Agra and Delhi ending January 15th. This tour will be designed to allow time for you to understand and record the exotic culture, sights and sounds of the real India.

If you are a photographer, writer, artist or any traveler who hates being rushed from one site to another then this tour is for you.

I am teaming up with the finest tour operator I have ever met. Louise Nicholson wrote the book on India. Her National Geographic Traveler: India is one of the best-selling guides to India. She is a true expert having visited the sub-continent more than 200 times. Also, because she has made TV documentaries on India, she knows the meaning of a ‘good view’ and she understands photographers’ requirements.

Louise has had years to find and develop relationships with the finest local guides to make sure our trip goes smoothly. We will be touring in comfort at the best time of year for photographic light and reasonable temperature to see India at its most spectacular.

My previous experience traveling on a Louise Nicholson organized tour in India is what convinced me to work with her to put together this trip. I know that this trip is going to be a wonderful experience for all.

If this tour sounds like anything you would be interested in then I highly encourage you to click through to my professional site to learn more about this India photo tour and to contact Louise directly for details on indianicholson@nyc.rr.com

7 Billion Unique Stories

Posted in Documentary | Photography, education, News, Non Profit, Recent Projects, Uncategorized, womens reproductive healthcare on July 15, 2011 by tuschman

A new report from the UN comes just ahead of a demographic milestone: the world’s population is expected to pass 7 billion in late October, only a dozen years after it surpassed 6 billion. The UNFPA (United Nations Population Fund) is about to release a new campaign urging each individual and organization to take creative action to solve the immense problems we face as global interconnected community. To quote from the brochure, “every day one billion of us go hungry, two billion of us are surviving on less than $1 a day, one billion of us don’t have access to clean water and more than one thousand women die in pregnancy or during childbirth each day.”

“In a world that is more interconnected than ever before, challenges such as poverty, inequality, women’s rights, aging and the environment belong to all of us.”

“These are problems that can, and must be solved. Thankfully, significant strides are being made by committed organizations and impassioned individuals all over the world. Working together, incremental actions will create exponential results.”

I am very proud that many of my images are being used to highlight this call to action. Below are ten posters featuring the campaign. Other photographs will also be used in a National Geographic insert, a multi-media web presentation and an exhibit in Copenhagen.

For those not familiar with UNFPA, the “United Nations Population Fund is an international development agency that promotes the right of every woman, man and child to enjoy a life of health and equal opportunity. UNFPA supports countries in using population data for policies and programmes to reduce poverty and to ensure that every pregnancy is wanted, every birth is safe, every young person is free of HIV/AIDS, and every girl and woman is treated with dignity and respect. UNFPA – because everyone counts.”

For the remainder of the year I will be posting stories on some of the issues that I have documented this past year, including a girl’s education project in Rajasthan, India and family planning programs in Latin America for Planned Parenthood. I also will be working in Kenya and Ethiopia, documenting malaria treatment and prevention and women’s reproductive healthcare.

Recent News- May 2010

Posted in Awards, News, Recent Projects on May 14, 2010 by tuschman

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.
