An exhibition of photographs by master photographer Mihai Vengher, dedicated to medical workers, is being hosted by Parliament this week. The exhibition is organized on the occasion of the Day of the Medical Worker and the Pharmacist, marked in the Republic of Moldova annually, on the third Sunday of June.
The 41 selected works from the author’s collection of thematic photographs present the medical workers in action – in an authentic, but discreet and empathetic way. Many of the photos were taken during the COVID-19 pandemic, when the author himself went through the disease, taking a series of photos from the hospital bed from the front line of the fight against coronavirus.
“It’s a professional mission of a photographer – to be in the front line no matter how risky it is, because that’s the only way you can be honest with the public, but, first of all – with yourself. Imaging the work of doctors is a difficult but honorable task. In this way, I tried to thank them for their care, for the sleepless nights and all the lives saved “, said Mihai Vengher.
