"Powerful images tell stories unlike any other medium can. And, â€˜powerfulâ€™ is an understatement when it comes to Paolo Patrunoâ€™s photographs.Â
Collaborating with Paolo to document our mother and child health project in South Omo, Ethiopia is one of the best decisions weâ€™ve made.Â
His photographs capture the heart of our work, communicating at once both the struggles and the hope of one of the most important issues facing African communities today. Paoloâ€™s passion for maternal health and his experience photographing its highs and lows made him a natural partner for AMREF, whose mandate is to show how African communities are at the centre of transforming lives for generations to come.
Most importantly for us, Paolo showed tremendous respect for all of the mothers, babies, nurses, midwives, doctors and community members he photographed."
