Sponsored Having photographed some of the most horrific, fast-moving news stories of the 1990s, Yael Swerdlow believes one of the keys to recovering from trauma and moral injury is for people to slow down and immerse themselves in classical music. But helping people do so means putting some of the fastest workstations and GPUs to work.
Maestro Games CEO Swerdlow began her career as a photojournalist whose assignments included the Rodney King Riots and the Northridge earthquake in early 1990s LA. She also shot the aftermath of the Rwanda genocide for International Medical Corp., as part of what she dryly tags the “man’s inhumanity world tour”, which also took place in Somalia and Southern Sudan.
Today, her Los Angeles – based company is a Social Purpose Corporation (SPC), with the main mission of addressing the consequences of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and moral injury, which is often described as a “wound to the soul” that can occur when individuals commit, fail to prevent, or witness an act that violates their moral beliefs. These problems are not only well-known in military and police circles, but also, increasingly, among other first responders and medical staff, particularly as they deal with the consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic.
