Wednesday 13 May | The power of images: the people working in health care

After weeks of uncertainty, the dust that the corona pandemic has spread seems to settle a little. Fewer cases of infection and disease are announced every day. The measures have loosened a bit, so now we can breathe a bit easier. Perhaps this applies most to the health care workers, who have been working around the clock for the last few weeks. Who are those people who have been fighting on the front line?

Arts are a great way to add a face and a feeling to abstract matters. And photography can tell an entire story with a single image. In this series of portraits of health care workers, the power of the image is shown once more. Check out this powerful series and see who the people behind the masks are.

Text is in Dutch, but the portraits speak for themselves. By photographer Jiri Büller.

Studium Generale created a Corona Care Package to make #StayingIn as pleasant as possible. In the following weeks we will share videos, blogs, articles and podcasts within four focus areas: Mental Health, The World After Corona, Arts & Culture and other online events.
