In 2010 and 2011, I accompanied teams of surgeons and medical staff to Vietnam to document their ongoing work with children and young adults. A primary ReSurge mission is to provide free reconstructive surgery and integrated care services for people in developing countries who would otherwise not be able to afford it. As a non- medical volunteer, I take photos that can be used to provide educational training and medical interchange, and can also be used to fundraise for future missions.
In May, 2013, I accompanied a ReSurge team of surgeons and medical staff to La Paz, Bolivia, to photograph the recently developed surgical program there. Over the course of two weeks, photographs were taken to illustrate ReSurge's efforts in bringing over 200 surgeries a year to this South American country.
In 2011-2012, with support from the City of Madison, I photographed the former Garver Feed & Supply Company building at 3244 Atwood Avenue in Madison. Dating to 1906 and featuring three-foot-thick masonry walls, solid concrete floors, muscular steel beams, and bold Romanesque arches, Garver Mill represents a magnificent ruin from a rich chapter of Madison's agricultural and industrial past.
Custom display prints of up to 36" were produced and installed in the Madison Municipal Building adjacent to the City's Planning Department. The showcasing of these images helped contribute to a revitalized discussion regarding Garver's future.
