On the Front Lines

Bryan Esler's avatar Bryan Esler

2020 is known as the Year of the Nurse. With "On the Front Lines," I plan to highlight West Michigan nurses who have worked to battle the COVID-19 pandemic. The black and white portraits will feature nurses wearing masks and their usual hospital wear, with a narrow focus area around the person's eyes. Each photograph will be accompanied by a story available online, as well as a way to donate to a COVID-19 cause. This piece has been graciously sponsored by Olympus America Inc. and PhotoEvo Pro, a local print lab. Spectrum Health and Mercy Health have also helped in the organization of their nursing staff. Following ArtPrize, I plan to continue the project online and with future gallery showings as applicable.
