Global Health Student Photography Contest


Photography has long served as an important tool for interpreting, understanding, and documenting health and health issues around the globe. EGHI hosts several programs that examine, interrogate, and celebrate this relationship. 

The Photograph as Document: Global Health and Social Justice 

In this panel discussion, participants explored the definition of documentary photography, the ethical considerations surrounding it, and the role the audience plays in creating a visual document's meaning.

The Global Health Student Photography Contest

The purpose of EGHI's Global Health Student Photography Contest is to foster cultural sensitivity by encouraging Emory students conducting global health projects to examine the culture and people with whom they are working. Students from across the Emory campus have participated in this contest, which is sponsored by Mr. Bob Yellowlees, an Atlanta business leader, philanthropist, and photographer who founded Lumière Gallery. In addition to capturing both a global health message and creating a photographic work of art, EGHI also asks Emory students to consider ethical issues when taking pictures of people in low- and middle-income countries.
