A Privilege Unlike Anything Else

May 3 - August 31, 2021
Julia and Larry Pollock Gallery
Cleveland Clinic main campus

In the wake of a global pandemic, nurses have been a guiding light and force of strength during a time of ongoing uncertainty. It is those qualities that Cleveland-based photographer Angelo Merendino wished to capture and celebrate against the backdrop of COVID-19. During the photography sessions for this exhibition--featuring eleven portraits of nurses from Cleveland Clinic locations throughout Northeast Ohio--Merendino asked each nurse to share experiences, challenges and hopes. Displayed with each portrait is their response to the question, "Why did you become a nurse?"
