A New Face for Leprosy

18 September 2023

In the spring of 2023, Lepra’s technical advisor - Emeritus Professor Diana Lockwood, travelled to Bangladesh with documentary photographer Tom Bradley to continue their thought-provoking series of portraits and real-life stories. 

With the aim of challenging the long-held myths and misunderstandings of leprosy, the intimate photographs offer a glimpse into the lives of twenty-two people affected by the disease.  

Their stories detail the difficulties they have faced through diagnosis, treatment and recovery, but also celebrates their remarkable personal achievements in the face of unimaginable adversity.  

In July, Professor Lockwood spoke to us about the project, and her experience of meeting the people Lepra have helped support in Bangladesh.
