Photo exhibit at Cleveland hospitals shines a light on heroes of COVID-19 pandemic

Angelo Merendino’s latest portrait photo project is based on a simple question: “Why did you become a nurse?

Nurses sacrifice a lot and devote immeasurable dedication to patient care. Thirteen years ago, Angelo Merendino, a Cleveland Magazine contributor, experienced their compassion when his first wife, Jennifer, began cancer treatment. His admiration only rose amid the COVID-19 pandemic, which served as a catalyst for the photographer’s latest project. Until May, a total of 30 portraits of local nurses will be on display at the Cleveland Clinic, MetroHealth and teaching hospitals. “Why did you become a nurse? “” Was the prompt Merendino asked them each. “No one responded from a place of ego or selfishness,” Merendino says. “It really cheered me up to think about how many good people are in this world.” Merendino has played down the backdrop to capture the human under the brush, inviting the personal relationship he knows firsthand. “A big part of that for me is trying to honor the people who have been there for me during the most difficult time of my life,” he says.
