AHDH, Inc.

We always arrive in Ridoré on a Friday and the team is ready to do whatever it takes in preparation for Monday when hundreds of people will be waiting to see the doctors. Volunteers bring large suitcases filled with supplies and medications. The first couple of days are about cleaning and getting organized, sorting out the medication making sure the surgeons and anesthesiologist are set up. The first images show doctors and med students working together installing a new state of the art light in the operating room. Monday morning is a bit overwhelming when we arrive at St. Josephs and see so many people waiting but everyone takes their places without complaining and the day begins.

About Jeane La Rance

My brother gave me my first camera when I was nine or ten years of age, he bought it in Europe. I don't remember much about the camera itself it was the pictures I couldn't get enough of, and that still holds true. My life is all about photography. In the beginning it was black and white film. I loved being in the darkroom nothing could compare to it and even though I swore I'd never go digital, I rarely shoot film anymore. I went to the Institute of American Indian Arts in Santa Fe, NM for my Bachelors Degree. There I studied Documentary Photography, Cinematography and Post Production Editing. Later I attended Savannah College of Art and Design for a Masters Degree in the same fields of study, Photography and Moving Images.
