In this interview with Cheryl Hanna-Truscott, we talk about how she began photographing mothers and babies in a prison nursery. Cheryl talks about her background in photography and her years as a midwife. Cheryl also talks about the photographs she’s made for the organization Midwives for Haiti.
If you’ve felt like you want to do something with your photography to help someone or something be seen, you’ll love this show. Cheryl has been doing work with her camera for years and has a beautiful body of work to show for it. Some of her work has been far from home, but the prison nursery project is near home.

Listened to most recent podcast. episode 21. Very powerful doing what she does. I came across a TED talk that she might want to check out. ‘A simple birth kit for mothers in the developing world. | Zubaida Bai’ Thank you for doing what you do.
I agree – Cheryl is doing powerful work. Thanks for your comment, Jenny
Thank you for your comments and interest, Drew. I listened to Zubaida Bai’s TED Talk and was impressed. I forwarded the link to the communications director of Midwives for Haiti. So much to be done. And, thanks to Jenny for sharing my photo journey!
Enjoyed this show. Happy you provided the venue for learning more about Cheryl and her photography. Liked hearing Norma at the end too. Keep up the good work when you have time!
