The Art Galleries of Allegheny College present photography by Pulitzer Center grantee Cheryl Hatch from her reporting project on the U.S. military's role in supporting the fight against the Ebola epidemic in Liberia. Hatch's photographs are part of an exhibition featuring faculty and alumni that runs from Tuesday, September 29, through Tuesday, October 27.

Hatch, a visiting assistant professor of journalism in the public interest, spoke about her work during the gallery opening on September 29. The Pulitzer Center supported the reporting project by Hatch and journalist Brian Castner, "The 101st Airborne, Fighting Ebola in Liberia."

Hatch has focused her camera and reporting on war, its aftermath and its effects on soldiers, their families and those caught in the crossfire, especially women and children. She has worked in Liberia, Somalia, Iraq and Eritrea. In the winter of 2011-2012, she embedded with the 1/25 Stryker Brigade Combat Team 1st Battalion, 5th Infantry Regiment in Afghanistan.
