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.
