Family portraits of babies disabled by Zika

  • In this Sept. 26, 2016 photo, Angelica Pereira holds a instant film photo of her and her daughter Luiza, who was born with microcephaly, one of many serious medical problems that can be caused by congenital Zika syndrome, in Santa Cruz do Capibaribe, Pernambuco state, Brazil. For a brief moment, mothers with 1-year-old babies with microcephaly, forgot about getting that hard-to-find drug needed to prevent their babies from having seizures or the uncomfortable stares directed at their children born with small heads because of a Zika virus infection in the womb. Instead they were just like any other moms getting the first formal photographs of their babies. AP Photo/Felipe Dana

  • This combo of nine photos taken between Sept. 26 and 29, 2016, shows infants who were born with microcephaly, one of many serious medical problems caused by congenital Zika syndrome, photographed with their mothers or family member, in Pernambuco state, Brazil. Associated Press photographer Felipe Dana has followed these babies from hospitals to their cribs, from brain exams to bath time. Dana used an instant film so they could immediately see and keep the photographs he made of them. Dana gave the mothers the prints but preserved the negatives, later bleaching and scanning them so they mirrored the images they took home. AP Photo/Felipe Dana
