We are so pleased with our well designed liveBooks website for the Diagnostic Microbiology Development Program. We proudly direct potential donors and volunteers to the site. We routinely include the link to the site in publications about our work in Cambodia and in talks at meetings of microbiologists. The liveBooks editSuite makes it easy to update the site with fresh photos and videos and information about recent events in the microbiology laboratories where we work. The diagnostic microbiology laboratories which the DMDP have implemented in Cambodia have recently been isolating Streptococcus suis, an emerging bacterial pathogen. Posting this information on our liveBooks website will attract the attention of microbiologists interested in using the laboratories for research on this important pathogen.

Jim McLaughlin, Ph.D, Co-founder and President of DMDP


The mission of the Diagnostic Microbiology Development Program is to build capacity for reliable infectious diseases diagnosis by strengthening the infrastructure and technical capabilities of technicians and clinical microbiologists in resource-poor countries. They accomplish this work with the assistance of many partners including volunteer clinical microbiologists willing to provide long term hands-on bench training in diagnostic microbiology.

DMDP was created in 2008 and to date have implemented microbiology laboratories in three provincial hospitals in Cambodia an provided technical assistance to the microbiology laboratory in the National Pediatric Hospital in Phnom Penh. To learn more about their amazing work go to their website or read the latest entry in their blog.

Sexy Backs for Autism

Posted by liveBooks

For Sexy Backs for Autism Awareness, liveBooks is the perfect product. liveBooks provides our audience with a positive viewing experience, and is an easy and supportive environment for visitors to navigate.

‘Sexy Backs’ and its junior project ‘Baby Backs’ were developed to raise awareness of Autism after my youngest son was diagnosed in 2008. The images are our interest point, but the real difference is made when people see or hear the word Autism… For those who know what Autism is, they share, and for those who don’t know what Autism is, they ask. Our liveBooks website has been an incredibly important part of our awareness project, and we can quite honestly say that we would not have had our success without liveBooks. I know thats a big statement, but if you visit our website you won’t see a lot of words, but you will see real people turning their backs FOR autism, not turning their backs on autism… and thats the key… liveBooks allows you too see!

In the latest series of photographs, Sexy Backs uses organic images, so there is no retouching. liveBooks reproduces these images beautifully. We can’t thank the team enough for producing and sponsoring a product that allows us to just be us!

James Price, Photographer and Founder of Sexy Backs for Autism

Sexy Backs for Autism was started by Creative Portrait Photographer, James Price. James started to think about ways to raise awareness of Autism when his youngest child, Tyler, was diagnosed at the age of 4. James realized that Autism was not a condition that people liked to talk about or face up to and decided to highlight that by asking people to be photographed turning their back for Autism. The idea was born.He called the concept ‘Sexy Backs’ and set out to produce simple black and white portraits, showing naked backs, that are cheeky and fun. James focused on the the essence of something we all have.

Having started the story Kenya’s Nubians: Then & Now in 2008, it wasn’t until I received a grant from the Open Society Institute before the project took on a life of its own. As I moved forward with my work and identified new audiences for the project, the development of a dedicated website specifically for the project became essential. I already had a preDesigned liveBooks site for my larger project Nowhere People, and was incredibly happy with the results I was getting from it, so there was no doubt in my mind that liveBooks would be a perfect fit. liveBooks generously donated the site to the project and as the project has developed, so has the need to expand the website. The developers at liveBooks have worked with me to customize components of the site as this project has grown. From a photo essay to international exhibitions, a multimedia feature and now into a book, Kenya’s Nubians has been an incredibly rewarding project to work on and develop. The liveBooks site has played a vital role in helping me expose the work and making sure it is accessible to a variety of important audiences.

Greg Constantine, Photojounalist

Nowhere People intends to give a small voice to people who for generation have had none. It aims to show the human toll the denial of citizenship has claimed on people and ethnic programs that find themselves excluded from society by forces beyond their control. More importantly, it hopes to provide tangible documentation of proof that millions of people hidden and forgotten all over the world actually exist. Photographer Greg Constantine began work on Nowhere People in 2005.

Kenya’s Nubians: Then and Now

Posted by liveBooks

Greg Constantine is a photojournalist from the United States. He currently resides in Asia where he is working on his most recent project, Nowhere People, which focuses on the denial of citizenship and the struggles of stateless ethnic minority groups around the world. As part of that project he is publishing a book in the fall of 2011 called Kenya’s Nubians: Then and Now. Without citizenship, stateless people have no recognized nationality, belong to no country and do not have access to most social, civil and economic rights. Greg’s work exposes the human toll that statelessness has claimed on people and ethnic groups that find themselves excluded from society by forces beyond their control.
