While documenting the work of “Eyes for Africa,” a non-profit organisation that funds cataract eye surgery for people in extremely remote areas of Ethiopia, Kerry Pryor produced this series of portraits.
The portraits are from the first of two trips that saw Pryor travel to Ethiopia in 2012, documenting patients waiting for surgery or to be seen by a doctor. Often the patients walk for miles, are too poor to afford shoes, quite frail and exhausted by the time they arrive at the clinic.
The work Eyes For Africa performs is life changing. Cataract surgery is the difference between night and day and patients can usually go home the next day with restored vision.
