Photos in new gallery tell stories of global health issues

By robin tricloes

The Emory Global Health Institute, a University-wide initiative that supports faculty, students and alumni in their work to find solutions to critical global health problems, opened a new photography gallery in its offices at 1599 Clifton Rd., 6th floor. The gallery features photographs by Atlanta photographer Billy Howard taken in Bangladesh, Nicaragua, Mexico and Ghana.

Howard’s work focuses on health, education and social themes. His photography has been exhibited internationally and is part of the permanent collections of the Library of Congress, the High Museum of Art, The Carter Center, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. His photographs were featured during the opening ceremonies of the 1996 Olympic Games in a tribute to Martin Luther King Jr. They also appear in the book “The Unfinished Presidency: Jimmy Carter’s Journey Beyond the White House,” by Douglas Brinkley.

The gallery was supported by Atlanta gallery owner and philanthropist Robert Yellowlees. Yellowlees is the founder of Atlanta’s Lumière Gallery and has collected photography and been a serious amateur photographer for more than 30 years.
