NEW AND MUTANT MICROBES

Archival Pigment Print, 1999.

The text reads—
"It is a matter of record that in 1969 the surgeon general, in a speech given at Hopkins, assured his audience that we had effectively probed most frontiers of knowledge in the infectious diseases field, that the remaining problems in this country were marginal, and that attention should now turn to the chronic diseases. it is evident now, as it should have been then, that mutation and change are facts of nature, that the world is increasingly interdependent, and that human health and survival will be challenged ad infinitum, by new and mutant microbes.
