Mahosot Hospital Patients
Because I didn't think about capturing patients until towards the end of the trip, I managed only to photograph pediatric patients and their families. I was trying to do candid shots, which was difficult because when I asked permission to photograph people, they all immediately smiled and posed for the camera! Oh, well. -Renée
Most of the pediatric patients were in rooms similar to these, with 8 beds per room, no air conditioning, and families sleeping between the beds on the floor. For those who could afford it, air conditioned rooms and private rooms were available for more money.
