The Faces of Diabetes

Feeling alone in dealing with your diabetes? Then you’ll want to check out Faces of Diabetes, a photography project by Edward Fieder.


Fieder, who has Type 1 diabetes, started the Faces of Diabetes Web site “so that people with diabetes, no matter their location, can come together to share their stories and experiences.” The site includes a gallery of faces, along with stories of how diabetes has affected the lives of those pictured.

Want to be a part of the site? Then send an e-mail to [email protected] describing how having the condition has affected your life, along with a photo of yourself. If you are in the southeastern United States, you also have the chance to become a part of Fieder’s upcoming photo book. Send an e-mail with the subject line “Photo Book — Your city, your state,” (for example, “Photo Book — Jacksonville, Florida) and a description of yourself in the body of the e-mail.
