A Labor of Love: The Caregiver Portraits by D. Michael Geller
245 West Olney Road
Norfolk - 23510 VA
A Labor of Love: The Caregiver Portraits by D. Michael Geller is a photography exhibition that tells the stories of 21 people from Hampton Roads who have devoted themselves to caring for their loved ones.

These caregivers provide physical, financial, and emotional support for those who cannot fully support themselves due to age, illness, or disability. While attention is sometimes given to the stories of the ailing and the infirm, caregiving is both a calling and an unsalaried career that is often overlooked.

The photographs in the exhibition were made by D. Michael Geller, a former geriatric medicine physician. Over the course of his professional life, Geller became keenly aware of the relatives who accompanied his patients and provided the necessary but often unacknowledged care that helped those who were ill live their lives to the fullest. As a photographer, he desired to use his camera to tell their stories.

The 25 photographs in the exhibition highlight the love and labor provided by caregivers while exploring a range of caregiving relationships. Visitors will see wives care for infirm husbands, sons care for ailing parents, sisters care for each other, and parents care for their disabled sons and daughters. By sharing caregivers’ everyday stories, the photographs shine a light on how members of our Hampton Roads community build and sustain their relationships.
