The Dead Sea

The Dead Sea
Paul Rousseau, MD

This photograph was taken during a chance discovery while walking in the woods outside of Charleston, SC. The rusting, dying boat could only hint at its history and the voyages it had taken in the Charleston Harbor and beyond. The title suggested itself.

Dr Rousseau is a Professor of Internal Medicine and a Physician in the Department of Palliative Care
at the Wake Forest University School of Medicine in Winston-Salem, NC.
