Sheila McKinnon: Invisible Women

Sheila McKinnon is a Canadian photographer-journalist who lives in Italy, and who worked in Africa and Asia for publications such as the New York Times, Newsweek and Die Welt. She has worked as a humanitarian photographer for UNICEF, Africare, FAO and other similar agencies.

I feature Sheila's work entitled "Invisible Women" which is in the form of a flash slideshow. It seems a bit dated because the photographs are not as clear as they should be, but this doesn't take away form the beauty of the images nor of the message the photo essay imparts.

The slideshow is graced by the lovely vocals of Rosie Wiederkehr, a Swiss singer and musician...don't turn off your speakers!!! It's really good.
