Freelance photographer Marcus DiPaola went to Liberia last month in search of stories, treatment centers and rural areas. He came back with entertaining, harrowing and sad tales of:

Burial teams struggling to collect the dead from folks that won’t give them up;

Orphans left behind by the disease;

Survivors working to help the sick;

The 12-year old mechanic who fixed his car;

and much more!

He’s also being monitored by Chicago public health officials for Ebola. An interesting chat with a brave photojournalist about his lengthy trip to Africa, so check it out!
