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.

MothrChldWomensTrust, a microfinance operation founded by Dana Dakin, afforded me the opportunity to document their inspiring work , capture the visible effects of their effort, and share it with the world.

The photographic essay that I created and produced captures my visual impressions of the results of WomensTrust investment in the community of Pokuase. The images attempt to tell a story that transitions between the harsh reality of poverty to the far horizons of hope. The images, taken throughout Ghana, are my attempt to illustrate an environment of pervasive poverty and  the heart and soul of opportunity.

We have assembled a book documenting the results of the WomensTrust initiative and it is available for purchase. To learn more, contact Mark Tuschman.
