A photo enthusiast friend of mine with a special interest in derelict buildings recently went on a photo trip to Berlin. One of the places he visited was an abandoned Soviet clinic outside the city. Go here to see more of his great HDR shots of this empty, but very atmospheric hospital.

Medical photographer Karl Southerton.

I came across this interview with British medical photographer Karl Southerton. He specializes in opthalmic photography and heads the photo department at the Western Eye Hospital in London.

The interview (April 2009) is part of a BBC News web series about medical specialities, called Inside Medicine.

A Video and a Great Blog

Two things caught my attention this last week:

  1. The video above, from KORB, directed by Rimantas Lukavicius. Absolutely stunning! Hat tip to Street Anatomy.
  2. The blog Medical Moments in 55 Words, where internist WordDoc writes about her patient encounters using only 55 words. The result has almost haiku-like qualities. Best blog I’ve read in ages!

More Than Nothing

Retinitis pigmentosa, as interpreted by photographer Bård Ek.

I visited a beautiful photo exhibition yesterday, titled “More Than Nothing” (Mer enn ingenting).  The Norwegian Association of the Blind and Partially Sighted has gotten 18 of Norway’s best photographers to interpret the most common eye conditions. The purpose is to show both what it’s like to be visually impaired, and to inform about the different conditions.

The photographers have interviewed persons with these conditions and then tried to what the world looks like through their eyes. All the photos can be seen on the exhibition website (only Norwegian text). Browse by clicking on the photographer’s names on the left.
