  1. i spent three days this week gathering interviews and documenting program activities for a malaria project that operates in the west nile region of uganda. west nile is the northwest corner of uganda, on the border of sudan and d.r. congo. as you might imagine, it the the region of the country that's west of the what? the nile. (the albert, or white, nile as it flows north to sudan)

    among other images, i got portraits of my interviewees, and these were some of my faves.

    the house is pretty much square, with the room behind them the bedroom. i got some pics in there with the net and was shooting almost completely blind it was so dark. i was happier out here in the main room because at least i had a little light from the doorway to compose my shots. and i had my flash on camera so i had its infrared focus assist.

    here i just bounced the flash off the wall right behind me. the unpainted brick gave some nice, warm glow.
