Indiana University commencements

Last month, I photographed six Indiana University commencement ceremonies on five different campuses in a span of seven days. It was a whirlwind of a week, but the ceremonies feature some of the best moments we capture all year for the university. Here is a selection of my favorite moments from the ceremonies I photographed:

Shortage of primary-care physicians in the United States

A few weeks back, I spent a morning doing rounds with a group of pediatric residents in the postpartum unit at Franciscan St. Francis Hospital in Indianapolis. The photos were for a story in the Desert News looking at the shortage of primary-care physicians – which include family doctors, general internists and pediatricians – in the United States. The supply of primary-care physicians is so low the average wait time for an appointment is nearly two months.

Parenting in the United States without paid maternity leave

Earlier this year, I photographed a few mothers in Bloomington for an Al Jazeera story about the absence of paid maternity leave in the United States. The U.S. is the only industrialized nation without some form of paid maternity leave after childbirth.

Indiana University through a plastic lens

I recently dusted off my Holga and shot a few rolls of 120 for the first time in years. As much as I love Instagram, it was nice to shoot without the instant gratification. My goal is to shoot more with my Holga this summer to force myself to be less reliant on the screen on the back of my digital SLRs. I feel like I often get into a rut where I’m shooting, shooting, shooting and not really seeing or thinking. That’s the great thing about the Holga: it forces me back to basics.
