Bite Your Lip

Nadus Films

This photograph was taken at the Yei medical hospital in 2007. This was a difficult shot to photograph since this boy was dying from malaria while on the bed. His mother was sitting next to him helpless. The boy’s breathing was erratic and shallow. Many of us on staff with Nadus had seen people on their deathbed, but never a victim this young. Coury Deeb blogged about this photograph while there, and it was called “bite your lip and keep filming”.
