Framing Hope showcases an extraordinary assemblage of photographs by Maurizio Papalia documenting the suffering, resilience and grace of people he cared for as a nurse during medical missions for the international humanitarian aid organization EMERGENCY.
Beginning in 2004, Maurizio worked at hospitals located in Afghanistan, Sierra Leone, Sudan and Central African Republic, witnessing and directly participating in EMERGENCY’s mission of providing free-of-charge, high-standard medical and surgical care to civilian victims of war.
Framing Hope forms a narrative revealing injustices and hardship faced by civilians in war zones, and also tells a story of positive action, profound solidarity, cooperation and grace between patients, families, nurses and doctors. Through his lens, Maurizio Papalia makes a case for choosing peace over war, healing over violence -- a compelling visual argument brought into focus by hope and authenticated by the photographer’s experiences as a nurse.
We truly appreciate Maurizio's donation of his photographs. Proceeds from purchase of the photos during the event will be donated to EMERGENCY USA.
