Kieran Kesner focused on the "Burial Team": "In Unification Town, Liberia young men take on the grim job of burying the dead lost to the Ebola virus currently devastating West Africa. Careful preparation is made before entering the homes of the deceased, and the team must disinfect thoroughly after removing the body.
