Tom Stephens’ Photo Journal
By Tom Stephens
Tom Stephens joined the MEDLIFE team in the summer of 2014 as an intern in our communications department. Tom decided to stay on with MEDLIFE to continue his work as a photographer and videographer documenting what the organization does. Tom has captured beautiful and captivating moments from working in the field over the last several months. Take a peak at Tom’s work through his eyes:
Patient follow-ups have been some of the most moving experiences in my MEDLIFE career. Witnessing the true test of unconditional love unfold before your eyes is a reflective experience.
The mobile clinic work that MEDLIFE undertakes has inspired me creatively in my documentary work.
The toothbrush station is one my favourite places to take photos on a mobile clinic. The children’s smiles make the long days worthwhile.
Julio Pineda is one of the many patients that we keep in touch with through our patient follow up program. He lost his leg to diabetes 2 years ago.
Seeing the beaming faces of volunteers and employees on Inauguration day reveals the true passion that has gone into our development projects.
There is nothing more fulfilling than working on a development project in Lima when the sun is out.
Watching the final stages of Inauguration. The picture speaks for itself.
A portrait shot of Julio Rivera, another follow-up patient. Julio had not left his house for 8 years due to his illness. I was moved by being a part of his first journey out of his house.
I took this photo on a combi bus after spending a long day is the field — father and daughter resting together after a long day.
This photo was taken in hills outside Lima: 6pm on a Friday evening after an education workshop. There is a hidden beauty to this poverty stricken reality.
