Mark Tuschman has been a freelance photographer for nearly 40 years. He has devoted much of the past decade to documenting global health challenges and women’s human rights issues, in collaboration with UN agencies, socially conscious corporations, foundations, and NGOs. His work has been featured at many international events, including the Women Deliver Conferences in 2013 and 2016, and the Carter Center’s Human Rights Defenders Forum in 2015. The Global Health Council named Mark Photographer of the Year in 2010, and his images won the Grand Prize in a worldwide photo competition sponsored by the Social Documentary Network and Management Sciences for Health. His book: "Faces of Courage: Intimate Portraits of Women on the Edge" was named as one of the best Photo Books of the Year by American Photo magazine in 2015. Former President Jimmy Carter endorsed the book and gave it a prominent place in his ongoing campaign for promoting human rights.
