On Henrietta Lacks:
Her name was Henrietta Lacks, but scientists know her as HeLa. She was a poor black tobacco farmer whose cells—taken without her knowledge in 1951—became one of the most important tools in medicine, vital for developing the polio vaccine, cloning, gene mapping, in vitro fertilization, and more. Henrietta’s cells have been bought and sold by the billions, yet she remains virtually unknown, and her family can’t afford health insurance.

Hi everyone, just an update; this photo was accepted into the 2014 International Krappy Kamera Competition, at the Soho Photo Gallery. Krappy Kamera is a competition meant for lofi cameras with less than great (crappy) lenses, like Holgas or Dianas. This is my first piece that’s been accepted into the contest, and I’m pretty excited.
The show is February 5th through March 1st. If you have the chance, go check it out!
