A PHOTOGRAPHIC EXPLORATION OF THE PHYSICIAN’S INNER LIFE
This is a collection of ten photographs. Each photograph is paired with a narrative contextualizing the image within medical literature and philosophical discourse. Every photograph-narrative duet, in turn, addresses a specific ethical-humanistic "tension" that physicians—and all healthcare providers—may encounter in daily practice.
These tensions can be conceived of as "knots" that tighten or loosen with time and circumstance. Deep-seated and enduring, these tensions harbor capacity to complicate and indelibly mark the inner lives of clinicians, rippling to upset provider wellbeing and patient care alike.
All photographs are set in the New York Simulation Center for the Health Sciences (NYSIM).
