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.

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.

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.

To see the award winning images please click here .

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.
