About the Book
With almost 400 black and white and colour photographs from 4 months working in Togo, western Africa, this is a portfolio narrowed down from more than 31,000 images.
A mixture of photos and photo essays from my three months working on the world's largest hospital ship - the Africa Mercy, as well as a photo essay "UNICODES and the Street Kids", a study on life on the streets. And my latest edition to Leprosy Eliminated? - a visit to a leprosy outpost in central Togo.
All profits go towards my next outing on the Africa Mercy, to Sierra Leone in February. All the crew (doctors, nurses, engineers, comms, dining staff etc.) are volunteers and so we have to rely on donors such as yourselves to fund our work.

I'm a professional documentary photographer. Much of my work over the next few years will be in Africa working with various aid organisations and other NGOs. Much of the personal documentary work relies of individual donors for support. If you would like to help out in any small way, please contact me firstname.lastname@example.org.
