Healthcare Portrait Project


"I started this project because I wanted to recognize people who are working in healthcare during this pandemic. Having previously worked in healthcare pre-Coronavirus, I know that many of them already had a tough enough job and can’t even begin to imagine what it’s like to continue to provide care right now amid resource shortages, scarcity of PPE and other necessary equipment, and the threat of the virus itself.

I have friends and family members who are working in several different capacities of healthcare during this pandemic, so the issue especially hits home for me. This is my way of making sure that their work and dedication are not overlooked.

If you are interesting in participating in the project, please email me at or find me on instagram @mattwrightphoto."
