Radford Davis: Life of Sierra Leone

A photographic exhibit that captures the lives, conditions, and challenges of the people in one of the poorest countries on Earth. With over half of the population living on less than $1.25 a day, many in Sierra Leone struggle to get enough to eat or pay for medicine. But the exhibit goes deeper, capturing the hope and joy that is beneath the surface.


Davis is an Associate Professor of Public Health in Veterinary Medicine at ISU.  His passion is documenting our world and its people through photo essays.
