"EPIDEMIC: Tuberculosis in the South African Gold Mining Community"
Award-winning photojournalist David Rochkind recently returned from five weeks reporting from South Africa, which has one of the highest rates of tuberculosis in the world. The TB epidemic has severely affected the country's mining community, particularly those who work in gold mines. His unforgettable photographs for the International Reporting Project (IRP), the global reporting program based at The Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS), document the ravages of the diseases as well as the work being done by South African and international health specialists in trying to stem the epidemic.
The exhibit will be on display on the fourth floor of the Wilson Center (directions) through May 15, 2009.
