The international medical humanitarian organization Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) is presenting “Central African Republic: Uncertain Tomorrow,” a two-part exhibition of photos taken by prize-winning photographer William Daniels. The exhibit—staged with the assistance of United Photo Industries—will showcase more some five dozen photos taken by Daniels over a span of three years, presenting an intimate portrait of a nation that has often been overlooked, even when it has been on the brink of collapse. MSF, which provides emergency medical care in more than 70 countries worldwide, has long been the primary health care provider in CAR, and expanded its programs there widely during the strife of recent years.

About the photographer:

French photographer Williams Daniels has made 10 trips to the Central African Republic since 2013, to show the appalling violence and chaos it has both endured and fostered. Prior to these trips, he covered many other contexts including the uprising against the Gaddafi regime in Libya, the fragile democracy movement in Kyrgyzstan, and a project on malaria that was exhibited in Paris and the European Parliament. Daniels’ photography has appeared in numerous outlets, including Time, National Geographic, and Le Monde. His work has won numerous international awards, including two World Press Awards, the Visa D’or Humanitarian Award at Perpignan photo festival, the Tim Hetherington Grant, and the Getty Grant.
