In rural Jamaica, dentists tend to the poor

Over five challenging days, 18 students and faculty from the Tufts University School of Dental Medicine set up shop in crossroads towns in Jamaica bringing relief and education to thousands who otherwise would suffer unattended. They performed hundreds of cases of dental triage. Photographs by Jessica Rinaldi

A 10-year-old girl named Jada grabbed onto Michael Golub’s hand as he was passing through the courtyard of the primary school in Brown’s Town, Jamaica. She had not been seen by a dentist and had a tooth that was painful and needed to be extracted. The Jamaica mission was bolstered by Golub’s parents, Tufts faculty members who have made humanitarian work a cornerstone of their personal and professional lives. (Jessica Rinaldi/Globe Staff)

The best Boston Globe photos of 2017

Globe photographers share the stories behind what went into making the year’s best photos, as selected by the editors of the Globe Magazine and photo department.

August 19 / Boston -- I was assigned to cover what was called the “Free Speech” rally on Boston Common. They were expecting to have Nazi sympathizers speaking. It was a week after Charlottesville; we were on edge. All eyes were on Boston. It was scary. The rally spilled into Downtown Crossing. Some protesters were trying to antagonize police. One pushed an officer against his motorcycle. There was a chase; the police officer was running full speed, tackled the guy, and threw him on the ground. This isn’t police brutality, just a show of force. You have to give them credit for showing restraint that day. They took a lot of abuse. (John Tlumacki/Globe Staff )

Yearning to breathe free

A year ago, eight Syrian families fled the violence of their homeland and immigrated to Greater Boston. They were among the last such refugees allowed into the United States as a result of the Trump administration’s multiple efforts to ban immigrants from certain majority Muslim countries, including Syria. To smooth the transition, Jewish Family Service of Metrowest launched the Syrian Refugee Humanitarian Project, working with Jewish synagogues, Islamic centers, doctors, dentists, businesses, and an army of volunteers to provide safety, hope and a new life to these immigrants. The Globe spent the past year following the refugees’ sometimes painful, sometimes joyous journey. From their first steps on American soil, Globe photographer Suzanne Kreiter and reporter Jenna Russell documented their struggles to acclimate to the climate, both meteorological and political; their efforts to adapt to a new culture while preserving their heritage; their determination to achieve self-sufficiency; and the bonds of friendship they forged with people who practice a religion they were taught as children to hate.

A solitary vigil, a song of love

Noelia Ferreira, like hundreds of Massachusetts parents, cares for her medically fragile daughter, Abi, at home. But MassHealth has let reimbursements languish, making it nearly impossible to find a skilled nurse to help her. Abi needs nearly round the clock medical care that Noelia is forced to do herself. “It puts Abi at risk and it’s killing me.” Noelia says. Photos by Suzanne Kreiter/Globe staff.

It’s been more than 150 days since Noelia has had skilled nursing help. She carries her 78-pound daughter up the stairs to begin the evening’s bedtime rituals. (Suzanne Kreiter/Globe Staff)
