Malaria is one of the great scourges of mankind.

In 2011 and 2012, I traveled the world in cooperation with Novartis to document the impact that malaria has on people — and to show that,with the right combination of know how, technology, resources, and collaboration, malaria can be beaten.

Through my photographs I witnessed the amazing story of the Novartis Malaria Initiative.

This massive program has delivered 600 million antimalarial treatments to adults and children in malari-infested regions across three continents

The following link will take you on a remarkable journey, from the creation of the antimalarial active ingredients in China,
to the treatment of malaria patients in Africa and Asia.

I hope you enjoy traveling with me on this journey.

Global_Health_logoOn May 1, 2009, I was recognized as the winner of the Global Health Council’s 2009 Photography Contest.

Annmarie Christensen, Global Health Council’s Director of Publications/New Media and Executive Editor of Global Health Magazine, recently informed me of this unexpected honor and went on to add:

“You have topped the field, in this particularly competitive year, which saw a number of professional photographers and more than 550 entries from every corner of the world. The jury found the lighting of your subjects particularly compelling in the way it brings out colors and nuances, and were struck by the composition. You are impressively talented.”

I was very moved by the receipt of this award and feel fortunate to be able to share my images and experiences with Global Health and to help support their important work around the world.

As a result of receiving this award, I will be exhibiting the award-winning images and other relevant photographs from my recent project Capital of Hope, at the annual international conference on Global Health. The conference will be held May 26-30 at the Omni Shoreham Hotel in Washington, DC, and globalhealth.org expects over 2,000 participants from around the globe.

I look forward to seeing you there and sharing your insights to my work and discussing photographic or documentary opportunities related to your organization.
