Additional Information

Daniel Heyman lives in Philadelphia and works mostly as a painter and printmaker. In 2010, he was honored with a Guggenheim Fellowship in Fine Arts. Heyman's Portrai of Osob reminds us that social, political, and economic conditions can affect the health of individuals. The Somalia woman and her family were terribly impacted by large societal forces that led to war and subsequently to heartbreak and displacement of individuals. There is also a message of hope that societal efforts can restore health and well-being-in this case through immigration policies for political refugees.
