The photographer, Ms. Natsuko Tominaga, has traveled extensively with Mr. Yohei Sasakawa, WHO Goodwill Ambassador for Leprosy and Chairman, The Nippon Foundation, Japan, accompanying him to meet persons affected by leprosy in remote corners of the world, including India. The photographs from her travels bring out the story of the lives of those affected in a poignant way. He is showing his work as a photo exhibition from April 20 to May 1, 2018 at Art Gallery, Kamladevi Complex India International Centre, Max Muller Marg, New Delhi. A thought-provoking photo- exhibition on the lives of persons affected by leprosy from India and other countries. Leprosy, which is a curable disease, still evokes fear and stigma. The photographs bring home the irrationality of this stigma against people who are no different from any of us and speak out, more loudly than words, against the discrimination that is meted out to them.
Please must visit this exhibition and learn ,how he created this project. also share pictures and your experience with us.
With warm wishes,
