[Comment] Health stories in focus: Highlights 2018 photography competition open for submissions
Earlier this year, The Lancet published a series of compelling photographs1 that marked the seventh anniversary of the Syrian conflict. The pictures of affected people and communities rehumanised the conflict and told stories of their lives and health. Importantly, the images—all taken by Syrian photographers—did not portray people as victims but instead portrayed lives in context, capturing moments of daily struggle, hardship, resilience, and hope. These pictures showed the power of photography to tell compelling health stories.
